Milton Hershey School has been mentioned in two cases in the media. In 2015 a house parent was arrested. He was later convicted and will be deported once time has been served. Later a girl committed suicide after she was kicked out and the school sued the parents apparently for even mentioning the suicide in relationship with the name of the school.
It seems safe to say that it cannot be fun to be there as a child and not even relatives to the child either

Boysville Children’s Home in Converse, Texas is mentioned in the media due to an arrest of a now former employee. The charges against him is Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child.
It remains unclear which kind of precautions that has been introduced to prevent this and how the management failed to set up simple guidelines which could have prevented the alleged abuse.
For now it is safe to say that it could not have been fun to be there as a child.
