I found this information today, it may be helpful to those looking for records:

From 1855 until 1979, the German Protestant Orphan Asylum provided care for orphans and neglected children through the State Street Children’s Home, located in uptown New Orleans. The initial concerns that we addressed were those of children who were orphaned from epidemics, or whose mothers were widowed during the Civil or World Wars. The State Street Children’s Home provided the children with a place to live, food, educational opportunities and vocational training. Times changed, however, and in 1979 the children’s home was closed and funds from the sale of the property were invested to create a grantmaking foundation, The GPOA Foundation. Our mission now is to support programs that serve children in Louisiana.

The State Street Childrens home's records are located at:

Yes, I realize a few others have said they looked here, without much luck, but this is the only information about old records I could find.
