Description
Ever since she was a little girl, Jane Addams hoped to help people in need. She wanted to create a place where people could find food, work, and community. In 1880, she chose a house in a run-down Chicago neighborhood in which she lived and tuned it into Hull House, a settlement home for the needy. She eventually added a playground, kindergarten, and a public bath. By 1907, Hull House included thirteen buildings and by the early 1920s, more than nine thousand people visited Hull House each week. The dreams of a smart, caring girl had becme a reality and the lives of hundreds of thousands of people were transformed when they stepped into the house that Jane Addams built.
