Re: Deborah Boys' Club in Chicago before 1930? #usa

Perry Shorris

I had two cousins who were living at the Deborah Boys Club in 1910, after their father had died and their mother had been sent to a mental institution.  It was located at 1813 East 16th Street.  It was founded in 1907 to provide a “real home life” to immigrant boys, as well as those who were homeless or were paroled from institutions.  Hugo P.J. Schleiger was the head and superintendent in 1910.
