Due to DCFS regulations, we are unable to rent any of our facilities to the public.
Lawrence Hall was founded in 1865 to take care of the thousands of orphaned children of the Civil War.
Like many non-profits that have existed for over one hundred years, our origin was through church activities to address the social needs of the time. Our history was partially linked with the Episcopal Church. Through our organizational evolution, we became a non-religious organization that encourages our youth to pursue any belief system of their choosing. We do receive support from a myriad of faith-based organizations through donations and volunteerism.
