In 1889, she and a friend, Ellen Gates Starr, rented a run-down mansion that once had belonged to a man named Charles Hull. The house stood in one of Chicago's industrial areas. Many European immigrants who had come to the U.S. seeking a better life, lived in the neighborhood. They spoke little, if any, English and lived in crowded, dirty tenements. Most worked in nearby factories, earning barely enough money to feed their families.
Addams and Starr hoped that Hull House would bring some light into these people's lives. One of the first things they did was set up a day-care center for small children. Mothers who worked all day had no way to care for their children. So they would tie their young children to a table leg and leave them in the tenement while they went off to work. Older children worked or roamed the streets. The day-care center provided children a safe environment and at least one meal a day.
Hull House also began a kindergarten and a boys' club for older youths. It later opened a coffee shop where adults met and socialized.
These two women alone could not do all this work. Others came to Hull House, offering their help. Many, like Jane Addams, were women from middle-class families. Like her, they wanted to experience the "real world," but had no existing outlet to do so. Hull House offered them a way to serve the community.
