22--Catholic Northwest Progress Continued From Page 21 apartment houses the resident must often spend anywhere from S9.500 to $20,500 depending on the size of the apartment. In addition to this initial pay- ment a monthly charge, the lowest of which is over $i00 is made. This usually includes food, utili- ties. weekly cleaning, laundry services and a general infirmary. For some the original output  and the monthly charge is not ex- orbitant for the security and en- efits received. The point is, there is a great-percentage of those over 65 who cannot afford the price and l[ who want, besides the necessities, the comfort and convenience of a Catholic chapel and atmosphere. Social Security Small The average social security pay- ment to a man over 65 in King .. : County is $78.71. Fifty .to 60 per  : cent of those over 64 have incomes " " of.less than $1,000 a year and 20 per cent are in the $1,000 to $2,- 000 income bracket. This simply does not make high monthly pay- ments feasible.

SISTER FRANCIS MICHAF-.L, F.C.S.P., floor supervisor at Ozanam Home, Tacoma, takes time from her duties to chat with two of the residents of the home. __ m THE EXTERIOR of Ozanam Home is seen above. The home was originally built as Visitation Convent School for Girls in which capacity it was run until the early 1920's. From that time until 1929 when the Providence Sisters took it over as a home [:or the aged, the St. Vincent de Paul Society used the home. It was during this time that Ozanam Home re- ceived its name. ....
