ton Park Hotel, Washington, D.C.

A staff member of Jewish Fam-
ily and Children's Services, Mrs.
Mark King, 17196 Birwood, has, in
effect, been foster mother to 57
children in the last 8 1/2 years. She
and her husband were among 12
couples honored for their out-
standing service at a recent civic
luncheon observing Foster Child
In 1955, Mrs. King was chosen
to be the foster mother in the
agency's "study" home. She will
retire in June after caring for
foster children ranging in age
from 2 to 18.
The "study" home is of vital im-
portance to the operation of the
agency. It is here that new chil-
dren are placed for observation so
their future care can be effectively
planned. Most of them have seri-
ous emotional problems.
Mrs. King has successfully
cared for all types of children,
ranging from the very young
who need close mothering to the
frustrated adolescent who needs
tolerance and is a cause of great
frustration and anxiety.
The agency staff reported Mrs.
King was especially remarkable at
helping disturbed children to ac-
cept some rules to make their
lives less disorganized and less
destructive to themselves.
An example of the influence
she has is a formerly disturbed
adolescent girl with no family who
is now normal and happy and en-
gaged to be married. The girl has
asked Mrs. King to act as her
mother during the wedding cere-
mony, a "task" for which Mrs.
King has postponed her own de-
parture from the city.
