Jane Addams was a wealthy young woman who dreamed of making a difference in the lives of impoverished people in her hometown of Chicago. She opened a settlement house called the Hull House in a poor part of town. She opened Hull House doors to anyone and everyone. Jane taught skills, held clubs, instructed classes, and fed those in need. Later, when people needed a public bath and a safe place to play, Jane made sure the commodities were built. After many years, a total of thirteen buildings helped transform the community. Jane Addams’s childhood dream came true and she became the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931.
