Located in Madill, Oklahoma, Baptist Home for Girls (BHG) provides a safe space where up to eight girls are placed in a cottage-style home under the supervision of a husband and wife serving as houseparents. The girls enjoy day-to-day life together—meals, 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 animal program with many involved in 4-H and FFA. These programs teach girls responsibility, patience and compassion.
Everyone on campus attends a local Southern Baptist church, and Bible studies and daily devotions are taught within the cottage. A plan of care identifying the needs of each girl and her family is implemented upon her arrival. Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children’s (OBHC) goal is to provide a Christian home environment until the students can be reunited with their family, graduate from high school or become capable, caring adults.
