Louisiana Baptist Children's Homes & Family Ministries is a faith-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing love, care, and hope in Christ to children and families in need. Established in 1899, the Children's Home is an agency of the Louisiana Baptist Convention and is governed by a 17-member board of trustees elected by the Convention to serve three-year terms on a rotating basis.
The Children's Home is recognized by the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) as a "Foster Care Community." LBCH Foster Parents meet DCFS regulations as certified foster parents. Approximately 80% of the children in LBCH foster homes are placed by DCFS and the other children are privately placed by a legal guardian.
The Children's Home receives no state or federal funding. Approximately 78% of all funding comes from individuals and churches. Less than 24% of funding goes to administrative costs, which means over 75% goes to direct ministry services. Less than 8% of funding comes from payment of services.
Our major service areas include: Residential Child Care for Children ages 5-17; Residential Foster Care for Children ages 5-17; Pathfinders Transitional Living for ages 18-21; HomePlace Residential Family Care for Homeless Children and Mothers; Christian Women's Job Corps of Monroe providing job and life skills training and certified GED/HiSET preparation; Granberry Counseling Centers with 11 statewide locations; Connect 1:27 Foster Care & Adoption Ministries; and Orphans Embrace International Orphan Care Mission Trips.
Our dedicated Christian ministry team strives to offer the highest quality of services. Services are provided without regard to race, gender, religion, or ability to pay. Please contact us for more information on how we may serve you or someone you know:
