Who We Are

Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children (OBHC) is the largest provider of private, not-for-profit, residential childcare in the state. We are an affiliate of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, which is comprised of 1,700 Oklahoma Southern Baptist churches. OBHC does not charge for any of our services, nor accepts government funds. OBHC is funded through the generosity of individuals, businesses as well as gifts from Southern Baptist churches through offerings and the Cooperative Program. We do not discriminate on placement based on race, color, national origin, or religious affiliation.


The mission of Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children is to demonstrate God’s love by providing hope through empowering children and their families to follow Christ.
