COmmodities and other food items are Obtained free or at minimal cost from the Food Bank, the Rice Bank and lo- cal Stores. But food isn't all that can be pro- Vided. C-JCOHN offices house a well- Stocked clothing room, where Burrell 15) that donated clothing be clean, in i 0od repair and sized. "If we wouldn t wear it, she says, "we don't want to ask somebody else to wear it." Some fur- niture, toys and at present even a Wheelchair are available to meet im- mediate needs. FEMA funds are limited to Use for food, utilities and shelter l Y ents, and the board has found it necessary to limit both the amount that can be a client and the length ..........Spent on of time someone can be helped. Rev. James Mancini, Our Lady of Fatima pastor, and Burrell say much of a caseworker's activity is intercession - referring clients to other agencies, re- ceiving referrals of clients with imme- diate needs, helping clients find af- fordable housing, or negotiating pay- ment arrangements with utilities com- panies. Perhaps C-JCOHN's most unusual intervention has been to solicit dona- tions of labor and materials to build a small home for a woman and her handicapped daughter. Sims says being in the ecumenical group lets people see their common denominators rather than their differ- ences. '%7e see that we are all human," those helping and those being helped," she says.

The main debate in the past was oW fast" should the integration by ac- complished, he said. "The change is that people are coming into our Society from non-Eu- ropean roots," he said. "Their concept of politics, economic and religion are different." For the Muslims, he said, the three are intertwined and overlapped in a way that modern Europeans or Americans would say violates a necessary and healthy separation of church and state. The Church and the larger societies must find ways to "allow them to function with their basic conceptions intact," Tomasi said.
