The Hebrew Orphans' Home was established in 1889 as the Hebrew Orphans' Asylum. In 1948, the Home was officially changed to the Jewish Children's Service and changed again in 1991 to the Jewish Educational Loan Fund. The collection is arranged in three series in alphabetical order and chronologically within each folder. Series I consists of the administrative files. Series II consists of case files of the orphanage's residents. Series III consists of case files of European children who were brought to Atlanta under the auspices of the home and who were then placed in foster care. Finding aid is available in the library.
