1930's Orphanages?

Answer

During the 1930s, orphanages in the United States became crowded. The Depression years forced them to place children in foster care with families because of depleted resources. In 1935 more families could care for children because of the Aid for Dependent Children legislation. This meant less children went to orphanages. Many orphanages started to care for children with emotional, mental, and physical problems. Social workers would rather place children in foster care than orphanages at this time.
