The Children’s Village at Christian City has been “home” to more than 1,000 abandoned, abused, and neglected children.

Christian City is a nonprofit, nondenominational organization that provides these special children a safe haven in a loving, family-centered residential setting. It also provides foster care placement in well-qualified homes in the community.

The Children’s Village ministers to those who are dealing with a life crisis, such as the death of a parent, divorce, or sexual, physical, and emotional abuse.

The program’s family environment allows children from every background to have access to a traditional family unit and support systems to help mend wounded spirits. For many children, The Children’s Village will be the only home they ever know.

All proceeds from this event will go to The Children’s Village at Christian City.
