By Max Alexander

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

This piece explores various options and ideas for the role of old age homes in community plans of intermediate to small sized cities. The piece highlights the possibility for a multi-functional agency organized and administered on behalf of the aged. The advantages of such an agency especially within a small community includes presence of board members who know the financial and social condition of clients and the community. The piece concludes by asserting why small and intermediate city agencies work better for economic and efficiency reasons.
