254. Bellefaire Jewish Childrens Bureau

Bellefaire Jewish Childrens Bureau is a kind of residential treatment facility for teenagers. One teenager Isabel Jamison experiences an inproper relationship with an employee. As result of this she became depressed and was given medication. The employees didn’t monitor her so she overdosed on the medication February 28, 1994 dying on March 17, 1994. The facility was ordered to pay a large sum to the poor girls relatives but her life was lost.

A testimony given on the Fornits Home for Wayward Web Fora speaks of worn down buildings, walls with graffiti. It is not a healing environment. It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
