Help "ft » for mothers who are not married Alqona K<muth County THURSDAY, DEC. W, 19M - ALOONA, IOWA 'Young, unmarried mothers in this part of Iowa apparently are making their plans without knowing about several kinds of special help which is available to them. Tliis conclusion is,, drawn from a progress report on the first 18 months of a special research project which has attempted to learn the best hometown answers tb the problems of teen-age unwed mothers. The project is handled by the Iowa Children's Home Society which has a branch office in Ft Dodge (Family and Children's Services) but all funds come from a special grant from the U. S. Children's Bureau and the State Department of Public In struction. 'Girls in the projec range in age from 13 to 18, and are technically children. They may live anywhere within ai hour's driving distance from Ft Dodge. Schooling and medical care are made available'in the Fort Dodge community, so a teen-age expectant mother 'may remain at home if she wishes while awaiting the baby. A special school was arranged; girls may use their family doctors and any hospital they choose. Of 36 girls who have^consid- cred taking part in the project, 12 were married before the baby was born. Seven of them nevertheless continued their education in the special school or asked for counselling by. project caseworkers. Seventeen unmarried girls used the facilities of the project. Biggest problem iis that unmarried .girls apparently ; are making their decisions about going away or getting married without realizing that the pro ject exists and they have another choice.
