The Orphan Experience
By: Salina Beattie
Where Did They Come/Go?
The Orphan train movement started at NYC and then traveled to the Mid-west and Canada. Most kids didn't even know where they were going.
Why Did This Happen?
This movement happen because there were so many homeless children on the streets of New York. So Charles Loring Brace wanted to help these kids. So he founded "The Children's Aid Society". Also. to help these kids out, they were payed for their work. Now this is a concept of Foster care.
