I want to post the correct spelling of the name of the home in Westminster, VT, based on the 1933 census of dependent children conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau :

New England Kurn Hattin Homes. The name is derived from a place in the Holy Land : Kuron Hattin (means "Horns of Hattin"). It was located near the Sea of Galilee.

The names of the inmates of orphanages were not printed in the report of the 1933 census, and I don't know if the names were even taken by the census taker. Perhaps he only took the quantity of children in each institution.

New England Kurn Hattin is correct although I did not know its exact location in VT.
I was looking for the time frame of 1955 as my brother was placed there at that time. I have since found my brother.

The other location was North Ave Burlington VT.
St Josephs Orphanage that I made reference to.

Thanks for your responce!

I believe my father (last name is Perras) was in St. Joseph's in the early 1950's, his mother put him there when he was 7 years old along with his sister who was only 15 months old.
Coincidentally, I have an uncle who was at the Kurn Hatten home for boys (last name Kinne) around that same time and he would have been about 10-13 yrs of age.

I wish I knew more about their time spent there. They don't talk much about that time period, they were put there due to sad and fatal circumstances. Luckily my dad was taken in by his aunt and uncle when he was around 14. As far as my uncle I believe he was there until he entered the service.
