Public Welfare and the Social Worker

By Norman V. Lourie

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1964

The author is hopeful that we may be on our way to the development of national policy which calls for wiping out of poverty. However, he states that public welfare services will not eliminate poverty, though they have a role to play. In this piece, he describes this role as well as the relationship of the voluntary field to public welfare.
