Staff Participation in a Community Relations Program

By Sally F. Melnick

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

This piece presents the program of the Public Relations Department of the Jewish Child Care Association of New York, and describes the working relationship that has been developed between the Public Relations Department and the casework staff in its program of community relations. The piece highlights that one of the most urgent needs of the agency is the provision of an adequate supply of suitable foster homes, a situation made increasingly difficult by the housing shortage, rising cost of living, and many other community factors. The piece concludes by asserting that in the development of the agency's community relations programs, it is necessary to have the know-how of the public relations person, and the specific knowledge and skill of the caseworker to make the program successful.
