Administrative History:

The Council for Social Service (1915-1969) was created initially to promote the moral and social well-being of people through legislation, action, cooperation, and education.  Then went on to study social problems and to promote the formation of a Christian public opinion upon social problems.  In 1969, the C.S.S. was disbanded and was succeeded by Social Action Unit (National and World Program) (1967-1974) and then Social Action Ministries (1974-1990).
