Author: Yaakov Kop
April 13, 2005
The survey that follows examines the elements that affect the performance of the personal social services at the national and local levels and the ability of the services to meet the challenge of responding adequately to these needs.
The focus is on three main elements: the extent of financial resources available for personal social services; the legislative infrastructure of the services; and, the organizations that take part in delivering the services, their roles, and their interrelations.
