Case Five: Breaking Up Is To Do


Social Service Agency (SSA) is a sectarian family service agency that provides counseling, family life education and other public service education programs to the community. It was founded by its major funding source, a sectarian fundraising and allocating organization called the Community Planning Agency (CPA) and remains a division instead of a separate agency. When considering the separation of the SSA from the CPA many things must be considered such as the legal, financial, and political ramifications. This case study explores an organization’s complex web of stakeholders, interests, and dependencies.

Using a report on the potentials ramifications, you will have to decide whether the SSA should separate from the CPA.

Scenario: The Healing Center is offering free community seminars on various topics from parenting classes to financial planning. They are hoping these seminars will get more people into the center and ultimately increase their customer base. While the event is free for participants, it is costing the agency money due to paying staff overtime. The financial stakeholders are pushing the director to charge a nominal fee for participation.

Discuss the ethical stakeholder conflict and present a plan of action for the director. Incorporate concepts from the required reading, the case study, and the SLU values of integrity and community. Respond to two peers with scholarly support.
