Hendrick Home for Children was founded in 1939 by West Texas pioneers, Thomas G. and Ida Nations Hendrick. After the Hendricks lost their only child, four-year old Joseph, they dedicated their lives and resources to caring for other children. The Hendricks established the Home to serve children who needed long-term quality care due to the Great Depression that left many families desperate and their children without proper care and nourishment.
