Castelar Creche was located at 818 Castelar Street Los Angeles in 1944 listing. It was run by the Franciscian Sisters of Penance and Christian Charity. I believe it
was only able to provide care for 30 children or rather
infants in '44. I was placed there as an infant direct
from the hosptial in '45 as a boarder. However if memory
is correct, when I turned a year old I would have to be moved, and that would have been with the Sisters of Charity at the Los Angeles Orphan Aslyum. The original adoptions
from Castelar Creche were done through the Native Sons and
Daughters of Los Angeles. You might go into Sacredhealings.com/triadoption/California. Hope this gives you some assistance.
