Children’s Home Inc. is a rainbow of
hope for children in need.
1955 they have provided Christian homes for children whose parents
cannot care for them because of death, separation, abandonment, illness
or other reasons. The Children’s Home is 100% privately supported
and does not accept government boarding payments. Funding comes from
donations from churches, individuals, businesses, groups and foundations. The Children’s Home offers various programs and
services such as: residential care, foster care, adoption, learning
centers and animal therapy. The residential care program consists
of nine family cottages located on its main campus in Paragould,
AR. Each cottage contains a Christian husband and wife which are
called “house parents”. Each team of “house parents”
oversees the children in their home. In residential care children
are expected to participate in regular worship services.
Children's Homes provides care for 17-20 children in private Christian
homes in Arkansas. Each foster family provides a Christian environment
within their own home, caring for children in both short-term and
long-term situations. Children's Homes also works to facilitate
adoptions to families who are faithful members of the churches of
Christ. Every year the members of the Cades Church Of
Christ volunteer to support one of the residential cottages at the
Children’s home. The support provided consists of:
periodic fellowship and visitation of the cottage, arranging activities
in which to provide outings for the children and providing Christmas
presents for each child in the cottage. The members of our
congregation are proud to support this great work and realize the need
for Christian families to aid in helping each child overcome the
unfortunate effects of abuse & neglect.
Bowling is Fun!
A group from Cades took one of the group homes out for pizza and a couple hours of bowling in Jonesboro, AR. in February, 2010.
