Children's home 1914

Does anyone know of a children’s home in Lethbridge in and around 1914??

I’m looking for 3 siblings, with the surname Swerdfegger/swartzfigger or Kaus or Fane. The siblings I’m looking for are Sarah A, b. abt 1896; George, b. 1899; Emily, b. abt June 1903, and; Henry b. abt April 1907.
Sarah, George and Emily were children of Harriet (Rose) Kaus nee Fane (biological father unknown), Step father Amos Swerdfegger. Henry is Rose and Amos’ son.

I have reason to believe that three of the eight children were placed in a Children home in Lethbridge, in and around 1914 after Amos and Rose’s marriage ended.

I have censuses for 1901, 1906, 1911 and 1916 confirming the union and separation of the family in Alberta. But have not been able to find the siblings in question in the cenesus after 1911. I was able to obtain death certificats for George, Henry and the eldest sibling (annie) in BC.
