It is characterized by a exploration with the person of his situation i>j dis- •tinfiuished from merely expressing interest or reassurance. Due to the current economic and employment trend, there have been more requests for financial assistance and with such requests due to unemployment, there have been seri- [»us family problems." "In September 1948, National Headquarters sent a revised statement to all the Ch;i|}/ters, of the Home Service Program. There had been more changes made in the scope of the program and it was necessary to limit the financial assistance policy. There were several meetings held at the Chapter with the Superintendent of Pxiblic We- farc and the Salvation Army representative in an^ effort to form a community plan for cooperation among the three agencies and to see that the needs of the people were being adequately met. Copies of our program statement were given to these agencies." "In October 1948, Miss Jane Kel- \ logg. Home Service Secretary, attended a course for Home Service Secretaries and Directors at the North Atlantic Headquarters in Now Yortt City for two weeks. The purpose of this course was to discuss the over-all administration of the Home Service Pro- igram, the parts to be played by volunteers in the program, and the Bif plication of the new policies. • "In December 1848, Miss Mary James, who had been appointed Home Service Field Consultant by the Area Office for the Connecticut Shore Chapters, announced that this group of chapters would meet once a month to discuss common problems - in Hon;e Service. IMLss Brown and Miss Kellogg have attended these meetings which ars held monthly in the various chapters belonging to the group. Miss Kellogg made a study of the transient problem Which she presented in Norwnlk. The discussion which followed indicated thnt many of tho chapters have had the HJUTIO transient clients, and a review of our policies for these cases proved very ,helpful. Miss James discussed the possibility of producing a movie which would illustrate the various services in Home Servica at one of the early meetings of this group and the suggestion met with a great deal of enthusiasm. A committee to work on the project was appointed. This committee, of which Miss Brown is a member, has been working hard on plans for such a movie and Mrs. Hysell M. Brooks of the Watertmry Chapter. hTS written the script for it. Jack Conwa.y \vill direct the production, .selecting the members of i the cnst from the St. Michael's j Playmnkers. The filming will ha j in charge of Theodore Milne. With thf; cooperation of those volunteers and the efforts of all the Home Service Committee members in these chapters to secure gifts of kodachrome film from local dealers in the several communities, it is hoped that the movie will soon be produced at a low cost." "In March of this year, Miss Brown, Home Service Committee Chairman, attended a two day institute at the Ar<m Office in New York for discussion of the duties and functions of the Chairman and Home Service ComTriittee. After her course, Miss Brown set to work re-organizinpr the Home Service Committee. This committee now numbers 14, who are: Miss Brown, Chairman. Miss Anna Crane; Mrs. Harris' Whittemore, Jr.,; Dr. Edward Williams; Joseph H. Little; Mrs. Chester Garvin of Beacon Falls; Mrs. Albert Zikorus of Bethany.; Mr. Jay L.

Austin and Mrs. John Carroll. The committee meets monthly and hypothetical cases are presented a.nd the Home Service Program statement discussed, in order to promote better interpretation and functioning of the department." "Social Welfare Aides under the leadership of Mrs. Clarence Austin have given many hours of assistance to the Home. Service Secretary. They are: Mrs. Austin; Mrs. Charles T. Reeve; Mrs. Thomas Ramsey: Mrs. V. C. Neklulin; Mrs. Oliver Case; Mrs. Albert Zikorus; Mrs. John J. Wrinn and Mrs. John Helquist."
