For children placed in Ihe home by Brazoria County Juvenile Probation Department, the county pays the home $5 per day and the parents are assessed $100 per month or less on an ability to pay basis A fee of $150 per month is charged for a private placement The Youth Home, which started receiving occupants on Sept, 26, is exceptionally clean and modern in every aspect and appears to have no noticeable institutional atmosphere Mrs Hardee said it would have even more of a home atmosphere, she believed, if some garden clubs would assist them and the children in properly landscaping the now "new house barren" yard. Another shortcoming in equipping the youth home is a lack of recreational equipment, both indoor and outdoor. "These children especially need outlets for their excess energy," she said. Another item for the lawn is a lawnmower, Hardee said, "It would fit in perfectly with our "doobies." His wife smiled and explained that doobies are credit slips given on an honor point system.
