Real Habilitation

By Maurice B. Hexter

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1915

Jewish relief organizations who proffer aid in the form of helping individuals to establish businesses need a way to measure the success of that form of aid. Using data from fifty-eight such cases, the author shows that even though only a quarter of the businesses thus established were able to fully support the individual (with their family), the many businesses and families that still required supplementary support from the agency should not be considered failures because they still contribute a large amount towards the family's needs, and even businesses that really fail do not present a greater cost to the agency than a different, non-entrepreneurial form of aid would.
