A Non-Profit Family Counseling Service for the Middle-Class

By Leonard Rohmer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1974

The author discusses the experience of his agency, the Westchester Jewish Community Services, with a mental health counseling program targeting the middle class, a demographic previously underserved because they tend to be uncomfortable using traditional agency services, but have difficulty meeting the cost of a private practice. He details the program's procedures, fee structure, advantages of service, issues and problems faced, and reactions to the program's operations by others.
