Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children


OBHC Impact Stories

Impact stories are written about, and occasionally written by, our OBHC residents. In these stories, readers can discover how we are making a difference in the lives of these young people. If it were not for the generous, ongoing support we receive, none of this would be possible.

New stories are added each month, so check back for updates, and share them with your friends. The most recent stories are posted at the top.
