1Title:  Bellefaire Records and Photographs, Series IV     
 Creator:  Gift of Bellefaire JCB 
 Dates:  1903-2005 
 Abstract:  Bellefaire JCB, a residential treatment center for emotionally disturbed adolescents, is the oldest Jewish social service agency in Cleveland, Ohio. It was dedicated on July 14, 1868 as the Jewish Orphan Asylum, established to care for Civil War orphans. By 1900, more than 400 orphans lived there. The name was changed to the Jewish Orphan Home (JOH) in 1919, and later to Bellefaire when its facilities moved to the corner of Belvoir and Fairmount boulevards in 1929. In 1941 the Orthodox Jewish Children's home merged with the Welfare Association for Jewish Children and thus became the Jewish Children's Bureau, which then formed a functional merger with Bellefaire to become Bellefaire Jewish Children's Bureau (from which the current name Bellefaire JCB is derived). In 1942 the orphanage changed its focus to include residential therapeutic care for emotionally disturbed children and stopped accepting orphans in 1943. In 1954, Bellefaire opened its admissions to children of all faiths and today (2019) provides counseling, substance abuse treatment, foster care, adoption services, and residential treatment. The Jewish Orphan Home Alumni Association was established in 1888 to serve and connect the orphans who formerly lived at the Jewish Orphan Home. The Association held Homecomings each year in Cleveland and had several active chapters located throughout the country. "Graduates" of JOH were designated by the year of their confirmation class. The Bellefaire Records and Photographs Series IV collection consists of alumni bulletins, annual reports, artwork, books, booklets, brochures, a cassette tape, correspondence, directories, handbooks, lists, minutes, negatives, newsletters, newspaper articles, outlines, pamphlets, photographs, programs, a reel, a scrapbook, slides, songbooks, a souvenir book, a timeline, and VHS tapes.
