God is changing lives!

Children who come from abusive homes have a hard time connecting with others. They’ve been traumatized by what they’ve experienced. They’ve learned they can’t trust other people. They face obstacles in life that most people won’t ever encounter.


But the abuse doesn’t get the last word. The neglect doesn’t define these young lives. Hope and healing are available to children who learn that they are loved unconditionally, despite what’s happened to them; who receive the therapy, support and supervision they need to overcome years of abuse; who finally experience the grace of their loving Creator.


Thanks for your interest in learning more about CCHO and our family of ministries. We exist to help the children and families we serve experience their worth in Christ. You’ll find some inspiring stories of life change below, along with more information about CCHO and ideas on how you can get involved in all that God is doing for these boys and girls!
