Residential Child Care

A Loving Embrace

Louisiana Baptist Children's Home does a lot more than just give children a place to live. This is where God's love takes children in and embraces them in a loving, caring family.

Our children receive quality medical care, nourishing food, proper clothes and a good education. We provide them with Christian counseling, lots of love and attention, and try to give them a childhood that's as normal as possible under difficult circumstances. Most importantly, we give them hope and a future by teaching them about the love of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Our Children

Our children attend public schools and participate in extracurricular activities. They get help with homework and tutoring by local teachers in our Learning Center. We provide music, dance, and recreation programs, along with a ceramic shop. Children attend local churches with their cottage family and participate in student ministry activities.

Who We Serve

We serve children ages five to seventeen in family-style homes we refer to as "cottages." Each child has his or her own bedroom and bathroom. Each residence accommodates up to six children at a time and is staffed with a caring Christian couple who are certified foster parents. Our Pathfinders transitional living program serves ages eighteen to twenty-one. This program is available for campus residents turning eighteen and for kids "aging out" of state foster care with no family or support system. Pathfinders are required to be working and/or attending school. A comprehensive exit strategy is established for each resident to prepare them for independent living.

Please call 318-343-4455 for more information.


Your gift provides love, care, and hope in Christ for children and families in need. 79% of all funding comes from individuals and churches. We receive no state or federal funding. All gifts are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.
