Mooseheart Home For Orphans And Dependents

I was researching my extended family and I came across the Sanders family and in the 1940 census, the youngest boy in the family was living at the Mooseheart Home For Orphans And Dependents. I'm curious as to why he would've been sent there at 15 if his mother and 5 of his older siblings were still alive and old enough to take care of him. He's listed as an inmate, but it's an orphanage.

So anyway, any info on the orphanage at the time would be a big help for this story to me.
