Where can families turn in times of crisis with their children? Costly private programs? Children’s Division? Is there another option?

There is a place…

Going beyond the limits of traditional foster care, children living at Show-Me Christian Youth Home receive therapeutic benefits from specialized programs in a Christ-centered, family environment.  Working together, we help each child—physically, academically, emotionally, and spiritually—overcome the struggles of their past and prepare for a successful future.

It’s not our obligation to help children and families in crisis—it’s an opportunity to make our neighborhoods a better place for all of us.
