Where can families turn in times of crisis with their children? Costly private programs? Children’s Division? Is there another option?

There is a place…

Going beyond the limits of traditional foster care, children living at Show-Me Christian Youth Home receive therapeutic benefits from specialized programs in a Christ-centered, family environment.  Working together, we help each child—physically, academically, emotionally, and spiritually—overcome the struggles of their past and prepare for a successful future.

It’s not our obligation to help children and families in crisis—it’s an opportunity to make our neighborhoods a better place for all of us.

Kayla’s story is one of hope and determination.

This 90-second video shows how one life can change when others see the struggles children are facing not as a problem, but an opportunity to show Christ’s love.

With alcoholic parents, Kayla was born into an unstable life with little support. Growing up she fell behind in school and quickly found herself spiraling in more dangerous behaviors. It wasn’t until she arrived at Show-Me Christian Youth Home at age 14, that life began to look like she might have a chance for success.

Show-Me Christian Youth Home seeks to rescue and restore young lives which are struggling in their current home environment.
