Heart for the Home Celebration

Fill the Gap

We are beyond excited to celebrate our 50th anniversary at our benefit dinner on Saturday, June 8 and the Great Grill Off on Sunday, June 9. After five incredible decades of ministry, the list of blessings we could praise God for is practically endless. One of those blessings would be our unbelievable staff, who not only give their hearts totally and completely to our purpose of helping people experience their worth in Christ, but who also bring so many wonderful talents to work each day.

Be sure to join us on Saturday, June 8 when Brandon Jurkovich, our Assistant Director of Clinical Services will deliver a powerful spoken word performance about legacy at our 50th Anniversary Benefit Dinner. Get your tickets today!

A great night with great laughs at the 2018 Heart for the Home Celebration

Laughter has a way of bringing people together, and on an early spring night at First Christian Church in Canton, comedian Michael Jr. definitely brought the funny! Nearly 500 people attended the 2018 Heart for the Home Celebration in support of Christian Children’s Home of Ohio and its family of ministries on Saturday, March 24, and they were treated to an assortment of tasty hor d’oeuvres and desserts, a huge silent auction with more than 100 bundles up for bidding, and a live comedy show from Christian comic Michael Jr.

We also handed out our Heart for the Home awards to Marge Furney in honor of her late husband and former CCHO board member Russ Furney, who served the agency for more than 20 years; and Ryan Rasmussen, lead pastor at First Christian Church, for the church’s decades of support and service. As a special treat, one of the young CCHO residents celebrated with us after being baptized earlier that day by sharing her testimony on stage before singing the song “Oceans” for the audience, a performance that earned her a standing ovation!

Flip through some of our favorite photos from the night below, and be on the lookout for details of our 50th anniversary celebration, coming in 2019!
