A Contribution to the History of Our Lady of Victory Infants Home and Hospital, Lackawanna, New York, 1936-1946
A home and parents are the birthright of every child. Children are the primary end of marriage and parents are responsible for the care, morals, education and religion of their children. When this is not possible, it is sometimes necessary for an agency to take over the care and training of the children and to remove them from their home, either permanently or temporarily. In such instances they can be cared for in various ways. They may be placed in boarding homes, offered for adoption or housed in institutions. St. Joseph's Orphanage and St. John's Protectory in Lackawanna, New York, provided for these children needing care away from their homes. In 1834 Father Baker was selected to be Superintendent of these institutions. During the period he was in charge, he tried to be father and mother to his charges and to give them the best that the world had to offer.
