-TWENTY-SIX EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1955 Dial'PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Takw Of 'Multi-Problem' Family Welfare Research Seeks To Rehabilitate Headache By HARRY WARNER JR. NBA: Special Correspondent : HAGERSTOWN— (NEA) —Re search workers are .seeking i this typical city fresh evidence t prove ; that a few families con sume most of'the-money requirec for welfare, health, and socia' work. "Multi-problem families" is the term' Community Research Asso elates coined to describe these problem .people. The research men went on the trail of this problem in St. Paul, Minn., several years ago. Study in St.-Paul disclosed that about two-thirds of the tax and charity money spent' by the community for'health and.welfare work went to .six per.cent of the city's fam ilies. . . "These families had a multiplicity of social, economic, health and behavioral or delinquency problems!" • according to Dr. Gordon Hatcher, director of the CRA pro- jectin-.Hagerstown. "These problems; caused or aggravated each other,' • forming a vicious circle from which the family could not escape,- and which was continued from- one. generation to the next." In some.-cases. 15 to 20 community [agencies in St. Paul were trying to help various members of the same family, without breaking the vicious circle. „• So far,-CRA has discovered that 1,137, families are . multi-problem families;: out of 22,312 families in Hagerstown and Washington County.. That is about one out qf 20, approximately the same proportion as In 'St. : Paul. Now that CRA has discovered that' i.vz few people take most, of the public health and welfare money; ; the-:<>rganization is attempting to ilearri : what. can be done about the-situation.- •" : In"the;Hagerstown area, it is beginning • ; a three-year effort to determine how these ! multi-prob- lem'families can. be rehabilitated. It will emphasize the health problem, "in this study, choosing only families Jin-which there is a phys- icaliy ; disabied member. This .'Rehabilitation project isn't just;an effort to,put another sheaf of\statistics'Jn.'. the files. If it W>rks, ;: it 'will have practical results,' -that :: could prove'very important/or . botlv the multi-problem families-and the cities- in; which they live.: . , :. - ... • BALTIMORE -Wt-The Very Rev. George A. Gleason, S. S., president of St. Charles College for 20 years, died last night in SI. Agnes Hospital after an illness of three months. , .... The 68-year-old priest, who was ordained here by the late Cardinal Gibbons in 1912, was a native of Providence and a practicing physician before he entered the priest- nood. He studied at St. Charles, priesthood preparatory, school, at nearby Catonsvi'lle, and at St. Mary's Seminary -here -and was ordained in the cathedral, here. During- his 20 years as president, St. Charles' enrollment increased 100 per cent to its present 420 students. • In addition to his educational A MARYLAND WELFARE "CLIENT" on her way to seek help in Washington County, where researchers say about one in 20 families who utilize welfare money are "multi-problem' families. Rehabilitation services, Dr. Catcher says, would "more than •ay for themselves, both financial- y and in. human happiness. The goals for rehabilitation of a fam- ly may range from complete or latrial employment and selfsup- x>rt. to improved ability of a disabled person to look after him- elf." : -..•'••••: ..' CRA hopes to. prove .that- re- labilitation ; can' be . accomplished vith these families in three ways: Existing ? resources 'in the 'area would be coordinated by joint lanning. "Psychological strains" vithin the family would be reliev- :d. And physical medicines and ehabilitation techniques that are isually confined to large • centers vould be 'made available in pa- ients' homes. ••...' -. CRA has discovered that Hagers- own and the remainder of Wash- ngtpn County, Maryland, have ,195. disabled adults. Only 130 f them are in institutions, which means:that nearly nine out of ten are staying at home. Moreover, welfare lists show that many of these disabled persons are young Only 60 per cent of them are past the age of 65.
