It’s a new year, but children from abusive and neglectful homes are faced with the same harsh realities. Kids like 15-year-old Kylie.
Kylie grew up feeling scared and isolated. She spent her childhood moving from home to home not knowing where she was going to go next.
The cold months after the holidays can be difficult for many people. They can be even harder for Kylie and kids like her who struggle each day to manage their emotions due to the significant trauma they’ve experienced.
Give a night of safety this winter!
Christian Children's Home of Ohio (CCHO) is a local nonprofit organization that has provided opportunities for donors like you to help abused and neglected children for more than 50 years. Based in Wooster, OH and serving all of Ohio – including Wayne County, Summit County, Stark County, Cuyahoga County, Franklin County and the surrounding areas – CCHO is a safe place for kids who have suffered extreme forms of physical abuse, sexual abuse and emotional abuse, as well as survivors of sex trafficking. Initially licensed as a foster care/group home for children, CCHO now has five cottages on its campus that are home to as many as 46 kids, ages 6-17, who have often been abused by parents or other people they trust. During their time with this faith-based charity in Ohio, children learn the tools they need to overcome the trauma they've experienced through various forms of therapeutic approaches (including recreational therapy, art therapy and equine therapy) as well as social, spiritual and educational opportunities designed to aid the child with the healing process, model for them how a healthy family functions, develop coping and life skills, and introduce them to Jesus Christ.
