Housing during the Progressive Era
This storyboard does not have a description.
Many immigrants from all around the world [most from Eastern Europe] came to America hoping to start a new life.
But mass migration to the U.S. caused a lot of people to become homeless and live in houses called Tenements where up to 10 people can share 1 bathroom.
Tenement houses were very difficult to live in because there would be 7 or more people living where you eat and sleep.
The Settlement movement was when houses were put in poor urban areas where wealthy people were hoping to educate the poor.
Settlement houses were houses that middle class people volunteered to help the poor with things from daycare to healthcare.
The main reason settlement houses were created was to bring the rich and poor together so there would be no social classes.
