The prevent ivc soci a! sc r vices department differs from most other service agen- cies in that it deals with a group rather than with a cli- ent on a one-to-one basis. The department was de- signed to help enhance in- dividual and family life, and lo preclude public depen- dency. Preventive social services, under Ihe direction of Tony Tobin, attempts lo create an awareness in Ihe community of social needs, and to mo- bilize the community and re- sources into meeting these needs. "Our prime purpose is the prevenlion of social dysfunc- tions such as menial illness and delinquency. We focus on people who arc already healthy and attempt to keep them that way, said Mr. Tobin "The Ixjst to do ii is to have the people identify 'heir problems, and the city can identify the social programs available, "Our services are not di- rected to any one segment of society we are working with the entire community. No part of society is immune from possible breakdown." Mr. Tobin said Ihe agency has often been identified aa a welfare program. "We don't want Lo be associated with only one part of our he said. The department works with any individual groups just forming by helping them de- termine resources, and with already-operating groups who require assistance with board- level problems. "The most important thing Is to get people involved. We want the people who will be utilizing the. services to be in- volved in planning ol the ser- vices." The department also co- ordinates existing public and private services, and will re- fer callers to the proper agency.
