Name: New Orleans Council of Social Agencies (New Orleans, La.)


Historical Note: The Council of Social Agencies of New Orleans was founded in 1921 and prospered through the 1960s. Committees and Divisions specialized in the following topics: health; family and child welfare, legislation, transients, World War II services, housing, character building, group work and recreation, social service exchange, social welfare planning. The Council served as a federated group of diverse area welfare organizations. It neither dealt directly with clients nor regulated member agencies. Instead, it strove to reduce duplication of services and foster long-range planning among area social service providers. In 1924 the Council and other groups founded the Community Chest as a fund-raising organization. By the 1930s the Council had a staff of several professionals and began managing four bureaus: Volunteer Service, Information Service, Social Service Exchange, and the Research Bureau.
