Public and Voluntary Agency Cooperation: A Bellwether of Democracy
Both public and private (or "voluntary") social welfare agencies must work together to provide for the needs of the American society in the years ahead. As the government extends its War on Poverty and provides more resources to government-sponsored social service institutions, private institutions must also adapt to the changing face of social service in America. Collaboration between public and private institutions can occur in areas such as social planning, provision of services, training of personnel, and research. Of course, sectarian agencies must be perfectly clear about their roles in these collaborations so as not to misuse public funds. Mutual understanding and cooperation will be necessary between these varying approaches to social services as professionals across the country work to alleviate the burdens of poverty and social strife.
