Foundation Grant Allows
Agency Service Growth

STAFF REPORT

Two local Jewish agencies
will receive a total of
$206,000 in grants from the
Detroit-based Skillman Foun-
dation. Fifty-four grants
totaling $5.2 were awarded by
the foundation's trustees at a
meeting Nov. 13.
The largest Jewish reci-
pient is Jewish Family Ser-
vice, which was allocated
$137,000 to initiate a child
abuse prevention program.
Jewish Home for Aged
received a $69,000 grant to
fund an inter-generational
program in which seniors
would work with children in
West Bloomfield schools.
The child abuse program
will feature intensive in-
tervention in families at risk
of child abuse, according to
foundation President Leonard
Smith. Jewish Family Service
hopes to serve 30 families
with pre-school children dur-

ing the three-year demonstra-
tion project's first 18 months,
he said.
Treatment will include in-
dividual and family counsel-
ing, group therapy, parenting
classes and service to
homemakers in the home,
Smith said. Quoting the JFS
grant proposal, Smith ex-
plained that the agency saw
the need for the program
"based upon our current
caseload and [information]
learned from other Oakland
County Agencies."
The grants awarded were
based on applications by the
two agencies, according to
foundation Program Officer
Kari Schlachtenhaufen.
The Skillman Foundation
was set up in 1960 by Rose P.
Skillman, widow of Robert H.
Skillman, vice president and
director of Minnesota Mining
and Manufacturing Co. Mrs.
Skillman, who died in 1983,
was Jewish.

Shelly Jackier

Jewish Welfare Federation
President Dr. Conrad L. Giles
has appointed Shelly Jackier
chairman of Federation's Otz-
ma Committee. Under the
leadership of National Chair-
man Peter M. Alter, Otzma is
a JWF/Jewish Agency-funded
program which provides
college-age young people with
a year of work and study in
Israel.

Thirteen local students
have already completed or are
currently participating in the
program. Otzma is geared
towards mature, highly
motivated young adults, age
18-24, who want to learn first
hand about Israel's history,
language, culture and
lifestyle. Recruitment has

begun for the program's third
year, and a limited number of
scholarships are still
available.
Jackier is executive director
of the American/Israel
Chamber of Commerce and
Industry of Metropolitan
Detroit. She serves on the
board of Federation's Women's
Division, and co-chairs the
Israel Trade Week committee
for this year's Israel In-
dependence Day celebration.
Otzma participants will be
involved in all phases of life
in Israel, including contact
with peers and adoption by
Israeli families.
Under the auspices of the
Jewish Welfare Federation
and funded in part by United
Jewish Charities and the
Jewish Agency for Israel, the
one-year fellowship begins in
August 1988.
For information on Project
Otzma, contact Ken Mintzer
at Federation, 965-3939.

Early Deadline

The Jewish News will
have an early deadline
for the issue of Jan. 8.
The deadline will be 12
noon Thursday, Dec.
31. Late copy will be us-
ed the following week
if it is still timely.
