545 |a The Baldwin Place Mission and Home for Little Wanderers (originally called the Union Mission) was established in 1865. Through the efforts of its founder, Reverend Russell G. Toles, and ten prominent Boston businessmen, donations of five thousand dollars each were made towards the development of a Home for children. In 1865, the Home for Little Wanderers took on a staff in their North End location and started a publication, Little Wanderer's Advocate. Until 1906, the HLW utilized the railroad system to take children in "orphan trains" out West to be adopted. By 1913, there were five branch offices in New England, with a new main loaction in Boston; by 1922, 15,000 children had been served. During the 1950s, the NEHLW acquired two homes for girls, Orchard Home and Everett House
