A National Approach to the Transient Problem

By Ralph Astrofsky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, June 1930

The author criticizes Jewish social work agencies for their unquestioning assistance to "transients" (people believed to be homeless voluntarily). He calls for a national solution to this problem, which the newly formed National Committee on Transients has begun to consider.
