Fargo Group uest ons ]Twin Facilities The need for additional facilities in Fargo for the care of unwed mothers has been questioned by the board of directors of the Far- go Community Council of Social Agencies. This organization has concluded that the Florence Crittenton Home, a non-sectarian agency, has adequ- ate facilities to care for the needs of unwed mothers who seek in- stitutional care and that the serv- ices currently rendered by the North Dakota House of Mercy, located in Fargo, are an unnecessary dupli- cation. A survey or the maternity home facilities was conducted by the Far- go Community Council of Social Agencies in order that information could be made available to social In a report now being readied for[Board of $3.011 per girl per day is]*l~ -1 1- 'lit its member agencies and the Unit- ] insufficient to cover the cost of care.

(Fig- ures for comparison of the two in- stitutions were not available be- cause the House of Mercy did not furnish the financial data for 1958 upon request by the Council. It is apparent, however, that the cost of care varies widely between the two institutions.) 2) Religious convictions and prac- tices are preserved at both facili- ities with broad limitations neces- sarily applicable. 3) The respective agencies provide casework services on an impartial basis. 4) No unfavorable factors were apparent which restricted the serv- the survey recommendations, which have been discussed with the board of directors of the respective insti- tuions, state that in view of the fact that the Florence Crittenton Home can meet the needs for the care of unwed mothers, the Evangel- ical Lutheran Church in coopera- tion with the Lutheran Welfare So- ciety might consider the possibili- ties of providing a physical plant and necessary services to meet a need for the care of pre-delinquent teen-age girls, a need n~t presently being met in the community. The Fargo Council of Social Agen- cies stated it hopes that its recom- mendations will be given more seri- ous consideration before duplicate A common school district may legally lease another building to carz!y out its responsibility of pro- viding education tto the students in the district, according to an opin- ion from Atty. Cren. Leslie B Bur- gum. In a letter to State's Attorney Charles E. Crane of Mott, the At- torney General said physical edu- cation and at%letic programs have become a recognized part of t~he school curricular and ~ousing facilities to carry on education in these courses are a necessity. Crane had posed the question whether or not the Mott School District could lease the National Guard Amor~j" for physical education and welfare agencies with reference to the care of unwed mothers in the community. The preIlminary findings of this survey state that the two units car- ing for unwed mothers in the com- munity are the House of Mercy,[ originally sponsored by individualsI of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, and the Florence Crittenton Home. ices of either institution to anyone in need of care. 5) Medical and hospital services are made available for girls at both facilities. 6) Both institutions are hampered in hiring fully technically-qualified personnel because salaries paid are well below normal standards. a non-sectarlan agency. 71 Insufficient revenue is the ma- Both institutions are members of jor contributing factor to the low the Council of Social Agencies of salaries being paid.
