The work of the Board of public welfare of Kansas City, Missouri
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The Board of Public Welfare idea is a universal one, by which we mean that such an institution is applicable to other communities. Its spirit, aim, and principles have been tested, and found not wanting; they meet the fundamental needs of a growing, modern, progressive city. Several years ago there developed in Galveston, Texas, a unique form of municipal government. So practical and so successful did this prove to be that within a short time this idea became nation-wide, and now we see cores of cities embracing the commission form of government. The welfare work in Kansas City is attracting to itself quite as much attention in the world of philanthropy. Its experience, which is so successful, is likely to be adopted widely.
