      In 1853, a young minister, Charles Loring Brace, became obsessed by NY homeless children, known as "street Arabs." From a prominent Connecticut family, he founded the Children's Aid Society; between 1854 - 1929, >100,000 children were sent, via orphan trains, to new homes in rural America. Brace believed farmers would welcome homeless children, take them into their homes & treat them as their own. His program would turn out to be a forerunner of modern foster care.
