George Whitefield, one of the leading preachers during the Great Awakening, is credited with starting the first orphanage in America in the colony of Georgia around 1738 (which was the year he sailed for Georgia from England). The influence of the Wesley brothers (John and Charles, founders of the Methodist Church and key factors in England's great Methodist Revival) was, no doubt, crucial in the beginning of said orphanage as well, as Whitefield was very good friends with them.
