Jane Addams was the founder of Hull, the first social settlement in Chicago When Miss Addams visited a poor area in Ixindon as a young lady, she watched the work at Toynbee Hall, which was the first social settlement in the world This new way of helping poor people with their problems inspired Miss Addams. and when she returned home she wanted to help the poor by using some of the new ideas. In 1889 she started what came to be known as Hull House. She lived and worked there for 46 years. The neighborhood was crowded with new Americans from many different countries. She tried to help them meet their problems of unemployment, poverty, and sickness. But just as important, she tried to change some of the things that caused these problems. She worked hard to get many laws passed. These included an eight-hour day for working woman; child labor laws; and the law that set up the world's first juvenile court.
