Legend: Definition of Needs

Wesley Centers for many years have offered some supplementary recreational
services in each of its neighborhoods in order to meet more individualized
needs. In assessing our services over a period of two years, we find that
the needs in each of our neighborhoods have increased. The resulting verbal
demands for additional recreational services are surpassing our ability to
meet them; since our primary unit of service is to the small club group, and
our staff's orientation and training is rarely, if ever, in the field of

We feel that reacreational services are needed and that we can end should
help, but realistically we cannot do it alone and continue to do justice
to our other program rieeds.
