One department, the Service for the Foreign Born, was founded in 1903 to help new immigrants adapt to life in the United States. The collection consists of this department of the NCJW's New York and Brooklyn Sections' case files dealing with the agency's efforts to help refugees adjust to the United States, its work to locate immigrants' missing relatives and friends, and administrative records of the Service for the Foreign Born.
