Missouri Baptist Childrens Home
Our Children's Christmas List
Our children come from lives of chaos, not calm; violence, not peace. Their lives have been filled with neglect, abuse, anger, betrayal and despair. Each year we work hard to make Christmas a wonderful experience for the children in our care. For many, this Christmas will be the FIRST time they've heard the Christmas Story. The holiday memories and traditions experienced at MBCH this year may be the only ones they have ever had.
You can help us make the holiday season special by providing Christmas presents for our children. The following "wish list" details many of the items we need to make this Christmas memorable.
Missouri Baptist Children's Home has 3 campuses and 7 offices across the state of Missouri. We serve approximately 90 children at any one time on our campuses. We also work with the infants of the mothers in our Pregnancy Counseling and Supportive Services program and with more than 350 children of all ages in our foster/adoptive program. The ages of the children in our residential program range from 6 to 21, however, the majority of our children are 11-18.
