Communal Buildings Dedicated and Planned
At a cost of $150,000, a new infirmary is to be erected as an addition to the Hebrew Home for the Aged Disabled, one of the leading Jewish social welfare institutions of San Francisco. Plans and specifications for the new wing have been completed by Samuel Lightner Hyman, local architect, and the Community Chest has been asked to give its final approval to the project.
This step was taken this week by Emile E. Kahn, president of the institution, after the Chest’s sub-committee on housing of indigents and incurables had approved the plan.
There will be no drive to secure the needed funds. Instead, members of the community will be asked to contribute.
Enlargement of the present home of the institution was decided on as necessary on account of the increasing demand for housing facilities in the home. The infirmary, as planned, will be modern in every respect and will be provided with 44 rooms. The present infirmary, which now houses 26 inmates, will be converted into living quarters for the inmates as soon as the new addition has been completed.
The Hebrew Home for the Aged Disabled now houses 93 inmates.
