Your help today will make a difference. Give Now.


Dear Friends,

Thank you for helping us provide hope to children and families through your support and prayers. Because of your help, we are able to encourage children to do their best in all areas of life.

Education is one area where children in our care sometimes struggle. Many children come to us discouraged, unmotivated, and a grade or two behind in school. It is a blessing to see the difference it makes to provide a safe, loving environment. Your support helps children in our care excel at school.

A Special Phone Call

A few weeks ago, I received a phone call from Emily,* a child in our care who will be a junior in high school this year. She was excited to tell me she scored a 29 (of a possible 36) on her ACT exam. Wow! Scoring a 29 is an achievement many parents spend thousands of dollars for in prep classes. >

Because of You

Because of you, we are able to provide excellent care for bright young boys and girls like Emily. When a child who has previously struggled at school begins to excel, we rejoice. This is a sign that the love, safety and encouragement they receive in our care is having an impact. If you ask Emily, she will tell you she loves living at OBHC.

Somewhere Else Besides Home

“About a year and a half ago…well, I realized I needed to be somewhere else besides home,” Emily explains. “My mom and I found this place… I knew it was where I needed to be. It’s really more than I ever thought it would be. I’m absolutely thrilled to be here.”

So Many Opportunities

Next year, Emily is looking forward to concurrent college courses and trying out for jazz choir. Her dream is to become a teacher. Emily is grateful for you and every person who donates to OBHC. “You’re the reason I’m living this present life and the reason I’m able to plan big for the future. I can’t thank you enough.” 

The new school year will begin soon. Now is the time when many children like Emily are coming to live at OBHC. Your gift is needed now to help children have a safe, loving home so they can do their best at school.  Thank you for helping us provide this ministry. Your prayers and support make a difference.

Will you send a back-to-school gift today?

God Bless You,
Greg McNeece, President
