Many of our children come from the local community where our House Father was raised and where our center is located although over the years we have had children brought to us from as far away as a 3 hour drive. Our children are not adopted out as they become part of family within this community. It is here they will remain connected to people they are familiar with. Because of this long term goal, we do not plan for adoption as an option. We plan to raise the children we bring in until they can live in the world as productive and responsible adults.
Our goal is that they never lose the connection of where they come from. In that, they will be able to make an impact within their own surroundings. We never want our children to feel as if they are orphaned, abandoned or disconnected from family and friends.
These children are the future. They will continue to show future generations how to live above their situations and thrive.
