Records, 1922-2004 (bulk 1990s-early 2000s), of Sunburst, Inc., a non-profit childcare agency affiliated with the United Church of Christ (UCC). It was founded in 1920 as the Winnebago Mission School but by the 1950s was known as the Winnebago Children's Home and in 1973 changed its name to Sunburst, Inc. The agency consisted of three branches: Sunburst Youth Homes (SBYH), Sunburst Family Services (SFS), and the Sunburst Foundation. The records primarily document the administrative actions of the Board of Directors and the interaction between the board and the three subordinate branches from 1990 to 2002, as well as the closure of SBYH in 2001 and the subsequent foreclosure and lawsuit brought against SBYH by the Bank of Withee.
