Jewish, Protestant, and Catholic social work agencies at the beginning of the 1960s frequently provided their services to community members who were not part of their sects; consequently, these sectarian organizations overlapped in many ways with non-sectarian social work agencies in their communities. While often the sectarian and non-sectarian institutions collaborated on projects and shared responsibilities, a significant lack of communication and cooperation continued to impede ideal service to the full community. The author suggests a careful and objective examination of the motivations and outcomes of sectarian planning and its reception among non-sectarian groups in order to strengthen social work across the board.
