St. Clara's was a Catholic orphanage in Denver, Colorado. It ran from 1890 to 1968, served over 10,000 children, and was funded by Catholic Charities and United Way. It closed due to funding shortfalls.

A 1967 Denver Catholic Register article shares some of the history:

"The structure at 3800 W . 29th avenue, which presently houses the children, was built in 1908. The original orphanage was located at 10th and Champa streets, where the same group of Sisters now operate St. Rose's residence, a home for working girls. Children were admitted to the original orphanage on 10th street on Christmas Eve 1890."
