Our Children's Christmas List

Christmas planning is already underway at Missouri Baptist Children’s Home. Lists are being made in the hopes of making this the best Christmas season ever for our children and youth. 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 TRUE story of Christmas. 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 4 offices across the state. We serve approximately 90 children at any one time on our campuses. We also work with the infants mothers in our Pregnancy Services programs and with more than 700 children of all ages in our foster/adoptive programs. The ages of the children in our care range from 6 to 21, however, the majority of our children are 11-18.
