The Welfare Council of Metropolitan Los Angeles reports and publications consists of documents produced by various divisions
of the Welfare Council, 1944-1953. In addition to by-laws and meeting minutes, the collection contains reports on such topics
as social welfare standards; youth services; housing for the aging; budgets, wages, and working conditions; juvenile delinquency;
and directories of member organizations and social services.
In 1944, the Los Angeles Council of Social Agencies (founded 1914) officially became the Welfare Council of Metropolitan Los
Angeles. Its mission was to engage in the development of a community program of health and welfare services, and to serve
as a medium for cooperative health and welfare planning in the Los Angeles region. In 1950, the Council officially separated
from its sister institution, the Welfare Federation, and changed its name to the Welfare Planning Council, Los Angeles Region.
