The Jane Addams Hull House


Founded by Jane Addams in 1889, Chicago, Illinios' Hull House may be the most famous of the "settlement houses" that improved life for immigrant families in poor city neighborhoods. Hull House offered classes, daycare, job assistance, and a place for labor unions to organize. Like most other settlement houses, Hull House was staffed mainly by women. The original building is now a museum, while the organization still survives and is active in the Chicago area.
