Your treasure helps our children!
Since 1904 the Florida Baptist Children’s Homes has served thousands of children and families in crisis. God’s people have generously supported this ministry for more than 100 years, and in turn have helped to bring children in a life of crisis to a life with Christ. Your support allows us to shelter hurting children in the arms of dedicated Christian workers. By becoming a Friend of Children you become part of a great heritage of helping to care for abused, neglected, and orphaned children in the name of Jesus.
Your gift is a true treasure that will be stored up in heaven. What better investment can be made than in the life of a child in crisis?
“. . . But store up for yourselves treasures in
heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy,
and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart
will be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)

Please help us change the lives and eternities of thousands of hurting children by becoming a Friend of Children!
