Description Promotional notecard from National Jewish Medical and Research Center showing the founders of the Denver Sheltering Home for Jewish Children. From left to right are Jennie Kantrowitz, Mollie Lifshutz, Mary Augenblich, Bessie Willens, Fannie Lorber and Sadie Francis. The Denver Sheltering Home for Jewish Children was founded in 1907 to care for children whose parents were victims of tuberculosis. It later evolved into the National Home for Asthmatic Children and eventually merged with National Jewish Hospital. Spearheaded by Fannie Lorber and Bessie Willens and other immigrant East European Jewish women, the home provided a traditional Jewish environment for the children who passed through its doors, as well as a strong secular education.
