Storyboard Text

  • 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.
