As Christian Children’s Home of Ohio (CCHO) and our family of ministries remain open during this uncharted time, our staff are among the frontline workers caring for others.

James from our teen boys cottage is one heart on the rise. He will soon graduate from our program and move on to independent living. When asked what he will take away from CCHO and what he liked about the program, here’s what James replied.
Through the Christmas Wish List, you are helping young lives feel heard, seen and valued. You are giving them a positive memory
and helping them experience their worth in Christ.
Instead of winning ribbons, Carbon now wins over the hearts of any person that he interacts with.
We ask, Lord, that Your presence always graces us, that our words and actions reflect Your heart for people. We ask that You give us eyes to see the hurting and the broken, to see people as You do. May You give us the opportunity to reach even more people for You in the coming decades.
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.
