To coordinate the variety of acculturation programs provided by its constituent agencies, synagogues, and community groups, the Baltimore federation established and staffed an Office for the Coordination of Acculturation Services. In its first year of operation, the Office has served as a clearinghouse of information, coordinated volunteer efforts on behalf of Soviet immigrants, and stimulated the development of a number of new acculturation programs.
