Find a way to get the orphans off the streets is a quest that was cut from the final version of Fallout 2.


An orphan named Bobby can be located in the southwest building of the Den Residential. Talk to him and he will elaborate on how miserable his life is, and how his father does not care about him. He will also reveal that many children in the Den suffer the same fate and that they need a better place to stay. When asked who could help them, he will mention Mom.

When speaking to Mom, she will say that she feels sorry for the abandoned kids and that she had actually thought about setting up an orphanage in the Den, but failed to do so. When asking her about a place that would be appropriate, she will suggest the squatter building located northwest in the Den's residential area. Go there and attempt to deal with the squatters and addicts that currently live in the place.

At this point, there are three options available: try to convince the squatters to leave the place peacefully, offer a deal in which they help the orphans in exchange for room and board or simply kill them. The first two options are harder, since a high Speech level is needed (around 75%); but 750 and/or 1000 XP are awarded, respectively. If choosing to kill them, only 500 XP will be gained.

After the squatters have been dealt with, return to Mom and inform her that the place is clear. The orphans will move into the building and the abandoned children (including the thieving kids) will permanently disappear from the streets.


  • In order for the thieving kids to truly disappear from the Den, the orphanage has to be visited at least once to check upon the children.
  • When speaking to Little Bobby after the orphanage is set up, 500 XP is gained for finding him a better place to stay.
