What Research Tells Us About Training for the Jewish Component in the Practice of Group Work in Jewish Settings
The authors discuss their agency's experience with a volunteer program of friendly visits to socially isolated and elderly community members in Buffalo, NY. They conclude that the program is of great value to clients and is rewarding to volunteers; that volunteer contact enhances traditional casework progress rather than detracting; that the time required for recruiting, training and supervising volunteers amply repays itself in value; that flexibility and creativity with resources is necessary to the success of the program; and that without the intervention of human contact, such as that provided by this program, social isolation can be damaging to elderly clients.
