Scope and Contents

Three studies of social and health services agencies in Rochester, New York. The first study, "A Survey of the Character Building Agencies of Rochester, New York," conducted for the Rochester Community Chest, assesses existing social agencies to determine if they are adequately meeting the needs of the community, if they are meeting those needs efficiently and if the facilities and buildings serve the purposes. "Cost and Volume of Social Work in Rochester, New York," is a series of reports exploring the cost of social and health services in Rochester. It is a collaborative report from the Rochester Council of Social Agencies, the Rochester Bureau of Municipal Research and the Department of Sociology of the University of Rochester. The final report is a narrative report of the agencies providing character building services titled "Meeting Human Needs." The report is the work of the Character Building Division of the Rochester Council of Social Agencies.
