I attended school with kids from the Davis Child Shelter. I had to walk within site of the home every day. I
dont recall any of us looking down on these kids, as they were kids
just like us with a slightly different home life. But I also dont
recall them, or us ever discussing it on the playground. The
shelter stopped being called the "Davis Child Shelter" in 1961 when it
became the Children's Home Society, which was heavy on adoption.
This building was torn down in 1964, and the property became part
of the HECKS discount store.
