Looking for an author

I read this book in the 80's... it was called "Runaway" or "Runaways" about an African-American teenage girl that runs away from an orphanage with a younger girl (I think she's deaf or maybe mute?)  They are rescued by a waitress named Lou Culpepper, and that's all I can remember.  Sound familiar to anyone?
