Helen and Fred Maiello ran a state group foster home for boys in their large white house on Cutler Street in Morristown back in the 1960s and 1970s. Caring for seven at a time, they served as foster parents to more than 50 boys who otherwise had no place to turn.
Four of those men returned to the old house this week. They reunited after losing touch with one another for 47 years. This was their first time back at the house.
On today's "Brian's Positively New Jersey,” Brian Donohue follows the men on their emotional return to their former home where they find the house is now a synagogue called Congregation Ahavath Yisrael.
They knock on the door not knowing what to expect, only to find that, yes, the old house is still a place where they get a warm welcome and a lesson in humanity.
