God's Children's HouseWhere We Meet
Our kids have lovingly named our building “God’s Children’s House.” This place is more than a building. It’s a safe place where they can learn, eat, and be loved.
Our Kids Deserve a Future
We Want to Help Them Earn One
A large part of our mission is to teach our kids responsibility and skills so they can earn and experience a successful future. We have an area with tables for doing homework and playing games. Additionally we have computers set up in several areas, that are used for educational games, to help students with projects for school, and sometimes just for entertainment.
GCH also has a sizable library of reference and free reading books as well as a number of books on tape. Reading is a high priority and is encouraged and rewarded.
Serving Our Kids
The members of our staff are intent on pouring God’s love over the kids of Gary, and helping them make wise choices to reach a successful future.
