The Effect of Community Factors on the Family Case Work Process

By Herman Weinheimer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1948

This paper is part of a panel on family casework and the relation to the community, at the National Confernece of Jewish Social Welfare, Baltimore, Maryland, June 2, 1947. It highlights the preliminary deliberations of an agency on its inclination to exile communal aspects of its work to the area of community interpretation. The speaker explains how the deliberative efforts were met with skepticism because of the belief that there was a need to discuss this area within the context of community interpretation and now in terms of casework. The piece concludes by asserting that people relate to the agency not merely as individuals or as members of their immediate families, but often also as persons with established ties and relations within the community, and that it is sometimes through the medium of their communal activities that they begin to engage with us.
