The Jewish Community Services of Queens-Nassau is a multiple-service agency, which has been given the responsibility of meeting basic social service needs in a middle class community. The agency mandate was to develop a type of service, which would meet client needs without necessarily following traditional patterns. If the treatment needs of our clients proved to be such that one psychiatrist who worked within the agency itself could meet them all, we might try to secure this kind of psychiatric service. Although our experience is limited, through out our experience with the psychiatrist hired, we have had enough of it to believe that psychiatric treatment provided by a social agency is essentially sound.
