: : : : I lived in Homewood Terrace from 1938 to 1943. Call it sentimality, I resided in Cottage 24 am 84 years old am trying to locate who the residents in Homewood Terrace lived there. I think there is a Homewood Terrace Alumni organization which may be of some help.

My grandfather and his sister were in the orphanage starting in 1941. My grandpa was in cottage 22 and he was 5 years old. His sister was 8 and was either in 23 or 24! He would love to get in touch!
