How We Work
Operating 11 homes across Missouri, Show-Me Christian Youth Home is dedicated to promoting the individual development of each child.
We feel there are four major areas essential in this complete development process…
- Spiritually – Our child-care staff provides daily nurturing from God’s Word. Breakfast devotions with the family, bedtime prayers, and weekly participation in church and youth group activities help to stimulate the spiritual growth of each child.
- Academically –The Show-Me Christian School is available to our children at each of our units and is growing each year, both in size and learning materials. Some of our children attend the public school, where the school faculty works closely with Show-Me staff to help them achieve academic success.
- Emotionally – Many hurting youngsters arrive at Show-Me. Our goal is to assure them that God loves them, we love them and they can learn to love themselves. Childcare staff help them confront the issues and work through the healing process to build a bright future. In addition to daily contact with trained and dedicated houseparents, children benefit from regular appointments with our licensed counselors.
- Physically – Healthy bodies and strong minds are a priority at Show-Me. Families enjoy nutritious meals together in their homes. Plenty of open space and recreational facilities, as well as school activities, promote healthy lifestyles. Medical, dental and eye care are available to each child.
