from the moment of the first tele-
phone call, that she can be helped.
The program coordinated and sim-
plified the services needed by the
girl, her infant and the couple
wishing to adopt her baby, elimin-
ating the need to deal with several
agencies. The director noted there
was a low drop-out rate among
girls coming to the agency. Those
who made other plans did so most
often to marry the infant's father
or to live in another city, he said.

Campaign - Israel Emergency Fund

21 st Annual Pre-Campaign Budget Conference

He said girls come to the agency
on their own, through their fami-
lies, their doctors, rabbis, attor-
neys and teachers. They come
from all areas of Philadelphia and
its suburbs, cities and towns
throughout Pennsylvania and near-
by states, he reported. They in-
clude high school, college, and
graduate students, girls in the pro-
fessions and trades, and married
women who are separated and di-
vorcees. He said they range in age
from 16 to 36 and that half of them
are under 20.
The services include provision of
living arrangements in an agency
foster home, maternity home or
the girl's own apartment prior , to
the baby's birth: pre-natal medical
care with a private doctor: semi-
private hospital care for delivery;
financial help when needed for
those services: counseling for the
girl and her family; legal services
when needed: counseling after the
baby's birth to help the mother
return to community hying; and
adoption placement of the . infant,
if that is the mother's wish:
The director said most girls plan
to give up their infants for adop-
tion and the babies are usually
placed in adoptive homes at the
age of five or six weeks. Until
placement, their development is
carefully observed in their foster
homes. The agency has a highly ex-
perienced group of foster mothers
to care for the infants. Girls who
choose to keep their babies often
ask for continued help from the
agency after the infant's birth.
citing the "changing morality"
of modern times, Taylor declared
that the problems of such girls
"are considerably different from
what they were ten years ago."
He added that "we know we can
