Store Away Your Troubles (2014)


Mayflower Hall at Pennhurst State School — East Vincent, Pennsylvania

It seems difficult to believe that 50% of the patients here were dropped off by parents or guardians – there just was not the capacity to care for children with disabilities at home. While some parents believed that they were doing what was best for their children, others wanted any child with a disability hidden away, as they were seen to be an abomination from God.
