Fall is an exciting time at the Children’s Home. The children enjoy playing outside, riding their bikes on campus, going to football games, and more. Fall is also when many churches visit our campus for a tour. If you have never been on campus or haven’t visited in a long time, schedule a tour for your group and let us show you how your support is changing lives at LBCH.
Fall is also an exciting time of the year because our churches provide all the food our children need through the Fall Food Roundup. You can find the FFR pickup schedule on our website. Thank you so much for meeting that need.
This is also the time of year when our staff presents the Children’s Home Annual Report to churches at their associational meetings. Let me give you a preview of that report. This past year, you helped provide ministry services for over 4,000 children, families, and individuals. Over 160 accepted Christ as their personal Savior.
Through our on-campus and off-campus residential programs, we served 193 children and 37 homeless mothers. An additional 156 families were served through placement referrals. Thirty-one Louisiana Baptist couples received adoption services during the year. We also sponsored a foster family camp for almost 200 children.
Our Granberry Counseling Centers staff provided counseling for 1,386 individuals including 54 Louisiana Baptist minister families. Christian Women’s Job Corps provided educational and job skills training for 66 women and had one of the highest graduation rates in the northeast region.
Through our Compassion for Kids community care ministry in Monroe, we served over 300 economically- challenged children, meeting basic life essentials. Our international orphan ministry in Haiti provided care for over 1,700 children.
Thank you again for making these life-changing ministries possible. Until I see you in church or on campus, may God bless you as you have blessed His children at your Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.
