Jans, Paul

Hide Profile

Paul Jans served as head resident of Hull-House from 1962 to 1969. In that capacity, he oversaw the transformation of Hull-House from a traditional settlement house at Halsted and Harrison to the Hull-House Association, an association of social service agencies scattered throughout the city. Jans oversaw an expansion of Hull-House Association services due to an increase in government funding. He also was instrumental in expanding the arts and theatre programs, transforming Hull-House Theatre into a near professional experimental theatre. Government cutbacks at the end of the 1960's, however, resulted in large deficits at Hull-House, and in 1969 Jans resigned.
