Springfield Redemption Home

The Springfield Redemption Home, organized by Mr. and Mrs. William H. Hunt in 1903, was set up for the “conversion, reformation, and Christian education of penitent erring girls and to provide a home for dependent infants and children.”

It operated at 11th and Jackson streets and then on North Douglas Avenue until the 1940s. For more details, see the history of the Family Service Center.
