Relevance and the Private Sector in American Social Welfare

By Herman D. Stein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1969

Evaluating the "relevance" of social welfare initiatives is critical to improving American society. By analyzing the social, economic, political, scientific, accountability, and competence "relevance" of an organization or initiative, society can determine its relative priority. This is not to say that only institutions addressing highest priority needs should be maintained but rather that all organizations should find a way to contribute in some way to addressing America's most critical needs. One such need is the eradication of poverty, a goal that has been in the sights of Jewish communal service workers for decades and waits to be fully realized by the present generation.
