The Cincinnati Children's Home was begun in the West End in 1860 by a group of local Quakers, supported by Mr. Munuy Shipley. They had established "Penn Mission" in a basement room on Mill St. (near Third St.), offering Swtday-school classes and a day school. Here, homeless children regularly turned up, and the women teachers soon began providing sleeping space for them at the Mission. Poor families had financial problems in taking care of their children, and these young ones too were token in. A better building was secured in 1864 in the same neighborhood, on Third St. near Park St., and the "Cincinnati Children's Home" was incorporated in December of that year. The Home's Board of Lady Managers, after six months, reported that 19 children had been place in foster homes and 80 attended the day school. A superintendent and a matron were employed.

The increasing numbers of children coming to the Home caused a series of moves to lager facilities:

1871 - to a fonner residence on W Third St., near Plum St.

1878- to a new facility on W Ninth St. Here, the Home not only received children on both a permanent and temporwy basis, but also offered a day nursery and a day school for children of working parents.

1917- they moved to the cowitiy campus at Madisonvile, where the present function is that of caring for emotionally troubled adolescents..

(1988); also county histories.) (The majority of children at

Cincinnati Children's Home were not orphans.)
