Baptist Home for Girls - Basic Care Services

PROGRAM GOAL:  The primary goal is to provide a Christian home environment for girls until they can be reunited with their family. If family reunification is not a viable option, Baptist Home for Girls can provide a home for the child until graduation from high school.

PROGRAM:  Baptist Home for Girls, Madill’s program offers the opportunity for up to eight girls to live in a cottage-style home, under the supervision of a husband and wife serving as houseparents. These girls enjoy day-to-day life together, from meals, to activities, chores and homework. They attend Madill Public Schools and are encouraged to participate in a variety of school and church activities.

The campus has an active and therapeutic animal program, with many involved in 4-H and FFA. These programs teach girls responsibility, patience and compassion. The campus has a gymnasium, swimming pool, activity buildings plus other amenities.

Criteria for Placement

Residents must have the ability to positively interact with adult caregivers and other residents. They also must be able to function in a public school setting and be willing to attend a local Southern Baptist Church. Children who are unwilling to attend school or who have had a history of school suspensions, expulsions, or truancy are usually not appropriate for placement, and are generally referred to facilities that offer on-campus education.

Our goal is to help you find the most appropriate services for your child, so that they may receive the best possible care available for their needs.

Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children are not equipped to accept children who are severely mentally or physically disabled, violent or destructive towards themselves or others, physically or sexually aggressive, or substance abusers. Other children OBHC typically does not accept are children who are emotionally or behaviorally disturbed to the point of requiring in-patient psychiatric treatment or extensive therapy, or in need of special education programs other than tutoring or LD (Learning Disabled) classes, such as ED, SED, MR or EMH.
