Abstract/Description: "The purpose of this study is to present descriptively the available information pertaining to the historical development of a voluntary non-profit home--Douglas Gardens, Jewish Home for the Aged of Greater Miami, Florida. The founders of the Home formed themselves into an organized group in 1939 and became incorporated as a non-profit organization on July 25, 1940. However, the Home was not opened for service until 1945. It was believed that information about the Home which was accumulated over the last twenty years would exhibit an historical and chronological experience of this sectarian group which would have wide application to similar efforts elsewhere"--Introduction.
