In Response To: Home for Unwed Mothers (Marla Williams)

This is a long shot because of the timing, but my mother's mother stayed at a home for poor unwed mothers in Iowa City where my mother was born, and which then served as an orphanage for the children.

It was called The White Cross Home. This was in 1915.

Good luck, I am looking for information too!
