Physical Description: 1 box, 1 folder

Arrangement

Organized into three series: Series 1: Annual Reports; Series 2: Adoption Papers; and Series 3: Ephemera.

Biographical/Historical note

The San Francisco Nursery for Homeless Children (SFNHC) was founded in 1892 as "a non-sectarian home for children whose parents, either by neglect, ill-fortune, or unfitness, could not give them proper care and protection" and the institution continued until at least 1932. Both boys and girls were admitted. SFNHC was originally incorporated as the San Francisco Female Hospital in 1878 and also incorporated a Foundling Home that was founded in 1887. SFNHC's stated purpose in 1900 was to be a home for children under the age of 12. In 1932 the ages of children allowed was "4 years 3 months to 16 years." The first location of SFNHC was at First St. and Bryant. They moved to Second St. and Harrison for a time, and then to 14th St. and Mission. In 1904, SFNHC moved from its home on Mission St. to a new builcling near 14th Ave. and Lake St. This new building was practically destroyed in the 1906 earthquake, and the children lived in tents for two weeks before being sent to an affiliated home in Sacramento. SFNHC rebuilt the building at 14th Ave and Lake St. By 1911, SFNHC had begun a successful series of annual pencil sales as a fundraiser. Records in this collection include a letter from Al Jolson. The children were treated to movies, gardening, open air shop classes, piano lessons, sewing lessons, folk dancing lessons, various circuses, the beach, the Chutes and the Pan-Pacific International Exposition. In 1915, the SFNHC children attended a Christmas play put on by Bruce Porter and the SFPOA children at the Haight St. orphanage. The SFNHC children attended public school (primarily Sutro Elementary). In 1921, the SFNHC children began going to the "country" for the summer. By 1932 SFNHC had purchased the Love Creek summer camp in Ben Lomond, California. When possible, parents were expected to pay something toward room and board, but State and County Aid was sometimes available as well. SFNHC was a member of the San Francisco Community Chest.
