H and I Sts. The Bruen Home. To th? Editor of The Star: Permit me to correct some Ideas tliat are prevalent In the public mind respecting the pecuniary support received by the Bruen Home for Children, located at 430 M street northwest. At a certain meeting held re cently In Calvary Baptist Church, where a friend of this homo rose and requested a share of the contributions taken up to be awarded to this home, a gentleman objected oil the ground that, as he stated, the home for destitute children was already heavily endowed by the late Mrs. A. M. Bruen. This gentleman is In error. Again, in the same church, on another occasion, it was stated that the Bruen Home was practically supported by Calvary Baptist Church. This is also an error. Again, an article recently appeared In one of our dally papers, stating that over 100 women were cared for In this home; that the work was being conducted much on the lines of the Florence Crittenden Home. Tills la also an error. in the first place, aside from the Interest of 1100 annually derived from a legacy, and aeide from one-half the rent being prom ised, and therefore regarded as secure for the present, the support of the home, as fur as money Is concerned. Is derived en tirely from the money paid tus by those who send children to this home. The home Is In no way endowed. In the second place. Calvary Baptist Church In no sense and in no manner prac tically supports the home. We wish to ac knowledge many gifts from that church, however, and many kind friends have we there. In the third plaoa there are not over eleven women in the home, and nine of these are mother* of children cared for by us. No woman of known Immoral life, past or present. Is received. The home Is essen tially * home for destitute children, of which there are at this time eighty-four. Of tills number seventee-n are fed, clothed and have medical care absolutely free of charge. Twenty-two children pay $5 or less per month each. As they go to the public schools, they require better cloth ing, overcoats, overshoes, umbrellas, ate., than they otherwise would. As must be apparent from tlse above, this work Is a large and Important one In this community. We do our best for them In every way possible. There should be a committee appointed In every church In the city, formed for the purpose of collecting money and gifts In furtherance of this work, as It lias become somewhat burden some on the comparatively few-who are In terested In the work. We need all the money and gifts we can get, and at this Christmas season It seems proper that the attention of the public should be called to the facts as they exist and to our needs and to our desire to obtain from them all the support and encouragement possible.
