The Role of the Family Agency in the Use of Housekeeper Service

By Sadie J. Ginns

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1946

This piece explores the role of the homemaker program in the family agency. The Jewish Welfare Society of Philadelphia for many years has offered a housekeeping program as one of its services. The emphasis placed upon the homemaker program is based on a recognition that through this service we are upholding one of the most fundamental and accepted concepts which led to the establishment of the family case work agency; that is the helping of families to preserve and maintain family life. To this end, housekeeping service is offered as a means of helping meet the threat of possible breakup of a home when a crisis of a particular kind occurs.
