Shawen Acres Children's Home, Dayton, Ohio

I am looking for additional records on Shawen Acres Children's Home in Dayton, Ohio. It was a part of Montgomery County Children's Services and housed children from the late 20's through late 70's. They no longer house children there and the place is now called the Haines Children's Center. The administration there is very unhelpful with sharing records. Their policies for providing records conflicts with state law. Archived records are supposedly kept by the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts but for some reason they cannot locate a large percentage of the records of Shawen Acres. The courts and Children's services point fingers at each other and maintains that the other is at fault or has responsibility to find them. I have seen partial records of my stay there but have been told that there are several more files. If anyone out there has had success or other sources to research please let me know. Wright State University has some extensive archive records given to it by a former administrator but these seem to be of a general nature and not specific to individuals.

I would also be interested in touching bases with former residents from there.

Thanks!
