Harriet Ware (1799–1847) was born in Paxton, Massachusetts. She was a school teacher in Maine and Rhode Island. She had a selfless, passionate love of orphans and began a school for destitute children on India Point in Providence, Rhode Island. Although people had advised her to give up, she was determined to do the impossible. Francis Wayland helped her to found the Providence Children’s Friend Society, a place for suffering children that needed help and provision.
