Karon first stepped foot on CCHO’s Wooster campus in November of 1981 when her parents, Tim and Pat McKelley, were hired as house parents in Cottage 2. This year, Karon celebrated her 25th work anniversary. What a way to wrap up our story series!
I continue to be involved with CCHO in volunteer capacities. I co-chair the mission team at Orrville Christian Church, which is supporting church of CCHO. CCHO will always have a special place in my heart.
As we prepared to celebrate our 50th anniversary here at CCHO and our family of ministries, we started poring through old photo albums filled with rich, wonderful history. As this 50th year winds down, please enjoy 50 photos from our five decades of ministry.
Today, we invite you to learn more about Esperanza de Ana, an affiliated ministry based in western South America, in story #47 of our 50 Stories for 50 Years of Ministry series.
Emily’s heading down a new path that’s healthy and filled with hope. Her emotional wellbeing looks much different than when she arrived on the CCHO campus in May. Her heart has been transformed because of Jesus, because of safety and mental health treatment, because of your support.
The youth in our residential center may not wake up in their own homes with their own families on Christmas morning, but because of kind and loyal supporters, they do wake up to an astonishing example of love.
