Multiple-Function Casework Agencies

By Morris Zelditch

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1947

This article presents the results of a questionnaire concerning multiple-service agencies. The author asserts that nearly all large family agencies have psychiatric, home economics, medical and psychological consultants, as well as homemaker services and case adjustments for refugees. The author states that each one of these should be considered as separate functions. He affirms that it is accepted by all that the merger of a family casework service with a child placement service is a marker of multiple-function agency, rather than a single-function one.
