The purpose of the Hull House was to ease the transition into American life for new immigrants (Lecture 9, slide 7). Addams, a middle-class woman, creates a community of middle-class professionals who are devoted to embracing these immigrants, but also shed light on the struggles they face. Addams has a holistic approach and focuses on how, regardless of class, progress is about mutual aid and focusing on “the neighborhood as a whole, men, women, and children taken in families as the Lord mixes them” (Addams, 5). She demonstrates that “hospitality still survives among foreigners” when recalling the educated Italian immigrants visiting and helping around Hull House every Saturday, while the Americans reciprocated by helping interpret papers and listen to stories of the home country (Addams, 6). Addams directly argues with Carnegie when she states, “theory that wealth brings responsibility… in these cases fails utterly” (Addams, 3).
