Christmas wishes come true (Story 46 of 50)

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.

Life is cool in the pool

CCHO has had a swimming pool on our campus for 23 years. In addition to traditional therapeutic treatment, physical recreation is an essential part of our residential center. After two decades of use and weather impact, the concrete pad surrounding the pool began showing several cracked areas. For safety reasons, this project needed our attention.

Celebrating our amazing volunteers

On October 17, 2019, Christian Children’s Home of Ohio hosted our first volunteer appreciation reception. It was a great time of fellowship, fun and reflection where CCHO recognized the hard work, dedication and love of our amazing volunteers.

We had always chosen our yearly fundraiser on the basis of the recipient’s overall need. After learning that Christian Children’s Home of Ohio (CCHO) was focused on nurturing young girls and boys who may never have received warmth from a home environment otherwise, we were excited to pick CCHO.

Answering a community calling (Story 23 of 50)

Our group from Fairlawn Mennonite Church in Apple Creek, Ohio has been regularly volunteering with CCHO since June 2018. We have been coming one or two Saturdays each month to spend time playing with the kids and sharing devotions and prayer with them. We love supporting CCHO because we are able to see the growth in the kids from month to month, and we know they are seeing Christ in the work of the staff and volunteers.

A faithful foundation (Story 8 of 50)

Fifty years ago today, on a Tuesday evening at Rittman First Church of Christ, 12 men were selected as members of the interim Board of Directors for Christian Children’s Home of Ohio (CCHO).
