The Philosophy of an Annual Family Fee in a Child Guidance Clinic

By Herman Leon

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1961

Fees at a social work agency can be charged according to the ability of a family to pay or according to the service being provided by the agency. While often fee policies are combinations of these two criteria, the author explores the practical advantages of a more "reality-oriented" annual (though adjustable) fee over a more "need-oriented" weekly fee. Such a system reduces appointment cancellations, alleviates conflict between agency personnel by providing a universal policy, and ensures more income and thereby expanded services.
