The Meaning of a Multiple-Function Agency to Client and Worker

By David Weiss

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

The merger of formerly divergent agencies into one, or a closer juncture of both types of service agencies in the intermediate and smaller communities, is now a reality in the social work field. It is the purpose of this paper to discuss the meaning of this reality in casework practice within the context of the experience of two small agencies that merged. The piece illustrates and discusses the role of caseworkers and practices within the resulting multiple-function agency, as well as the worker orientation within the context of agency policy and structural setup.
