From 1894 until 1979, the Lake Bluff Children’s Home in Lake Bluff, Illinois helped more than 100 children annually to build better lives. The residents lived, attended area schools and enjoyed the community as they grew into empowered young adults.
In 2011, “A Childhood Lost and Found: A Journey Back to the Lake Bluff Children’s Home,” a feature-length documentary created by Village of Lake Bluff resident Kraig Moreland, debuted, detailing the Home’s place in the community and profound impact on those who grew up there.
