Your church can transform the lives of hurting kids this Christmas
The youth who live in the residential center at Christian Children’s Home of Ohio (CCHO) come from hard places. They often don’t know the love of a family or the security of a next meal. They don’t know the joy of just being a kid. You can be part of life change for these children and teens.
We invite you to choose CCHO as your mission this Christmas and help kids in a tangible way.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP
Children who come from abusive and neglectful homes can go days with no food on the table. Worrying about food causes many of them to binge or hoard food they do find. They believe it's the only way they won't go hungry. Your donation of $21 will provide three days of filling and delicious meals each day to a child who is used to going hungry.
You can provide critical care and a safe place to stay for a child this holiday season. Your donation provides critical care with safe shelter, food, therapy, education, and healthy connection for a child at CCHO who has suffered abuse and neglect at home.
Donation: $60 for 1 child or $240 for 4 children
This holiday season you can help provide a child an opportunity to experience fun and connection through a special off-campus outing (visiting COSI, going to the movies, playing putt-putt, etc.). You can give a young boy or girl something to look forward to and help them know what it’s like to just be a kid.
Donation: $500 for 10 children
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.
