Burlington's Home for Destitute Children (Contact Info)

Incase you had an ancestor who stayed here, this is the current contact information for this Orphanage.

The Baird Center was founded as "The Home for Destitute Children" in 1865 to help children orphaned by the Civil War. Vermont had the highest per capita losses resulting from the war.

It changed to "The Children's Home" in 1932 when government funding began to be provided by the Roosevelt administration and people were better able to support their own kids at home.

It became the Baird Center for Children and families in 1982, and merged with Howard in 1994 to create a comprehensive system of care.
