“Taking the child in His arms, He said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.’” – Mark 9:36-37

What every child needs is a loving home – a place of safety, free of fear and sorrow.
Unfortunately, not every child gets that chance. In our society, kids get left behind – whether it’s because of violence, drugs, abuse, or any other tragic circumstance. Often, these victims have no safe haven – no loving home to take them in and provide the nurturing and support they need to bloom and prosper.
Looking after these little ones was one of Christ’s most compelling commands. The Lord said, “So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish.”
At Free Will Baptist Children’s Home, we take that command to heart and strive to care for these children as Christ cares for us – to provide a safe haven for troubled children aged 6-18 who have no other options.
But we can’t do it alone. We need your help – your love and your financial support. Your donations provide sustenance not just for this home and its mission, but for the children whom we serve.
Help us by contributing what you can to our home and the children who live here. Donate today and give a child a place of love, shelter, and hope.
How Your Donations Help the Home
There are many needs we have at the home - needs you can help meet with your kind donation.
Every dollar you give is vital. And every cent you donate is put to good use.
Each dollar you give is broken down as follows:
- $0.25 goes to administrative costs, including insurance and staff training.
- $0.25 goes to maintenance and upkeep of our buildings, grounds, and vehicles. This also helps cover our utility bills.
- $0.40 goes to helping care for our residents, including educational and extracurricular costs, personal care, outings, and clothing.
- $0.10 goes to food. We are able to keep our food budget lower due to donations and bargain shopping.
Every dollar you give goes to support the youngest citizens of God's kingdom: His children.
The bottom line is this: We cannot exist without your help. Support us and our children and help fulfill God's command to love one another and care for the least of these.
