Where We Have Been

Since 1969 Central Texas Children’s Home began as a promise to help troubled boys have a second chance. We’ve devoted our efforts to providing a safe haven for boys and girls impacted by trauma, abuse, neglect, abandonment, and selfishness.

“Our ministry is now about reconciliation (II Cor. 5:11-21), mending divides to strengthen families.”

We help children and their families learn to adjust, adapt, and overcome the pain of their past. As we teach those in need how to be healthy in the present and prepared to serve in the future, we remind them that God has plans for them.


Where We Are Now

With over 50 years of combined experience in caring for children and their families, our Christian Child Care staff and House Parents are devoted to making an impact on the lives of young people. At Central Texas Children’s Home, we find ourselves in a blessed position of stability and growth.

“Together, we address children’s spiritual, physical, educational, and emotional needs with a homogenous infusion of God’s love.”

Administrative staff keeps our patrons in mind as they utilize their 30+ years of administrative experience, and governance is provided by a well-rounded Board of Directors applying their decades of expertise and experience to uphold a deep abiding faith in God to all areas of their work. The Residential Services Director brings both years of compassion-driven experience and nationally recognized credentials as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

The Central Texas Children’s Home has surged forward with upgraded equipment, renovated buildings and grounds, with two new vans available for use by the cottage homes on campus. We've also bolstered our commitment to addressing the spiritual lives of our children by providing personal Bibles, weekly Bible devotionals, and regular opportunities to attend church on Sundays and Wednesdays.

“We’ve embarked on a new methodology of helping children and their families address the terrible things that have occurred in their lives.”

Trauma Informed Care enables and empowers children and families with an understanding of the impact trauma has made on their lives. This process identifies the unsuccessful behavioral triggers and scripts traumatized individuals have been playing out, then gives them the tools to conquer these triggers, re-write their scripts, and ultimately claim victory over trauma.

The Central Texas Children’s Home has heard and responded to the cries of those often marginalized with the love of the Lord.

Our plan is to measure young peoples’ needs and be accountable for those things we can provide, while expanding our services in this area.


Where We Are Going

Children need education, support, guidance, and a relationship with God through Christ to enable their transition into successful adults. We will develop a mentor program with members of the church community who will be a Godly role model and provide relationship support to the children served, while continuing to train all staff members in the techniques needed to assist those that have suffered dramatic traumas.

“As always, we will be going to the Lord in prayer.”

Central Texas Children’s Home has established the Maurice Kemper Endowment to provide financial support to help teens through transitional living services. Our plan is to measure young peoples’ needs and account for those things we can provide, while expanding our services in this area.

Central Texas Children’s Home has its sights set on one day hosting a foster care program, teaching Christian parenting classes, and providing Christian counseling to families and individuals in need. We plan to continue our legacy of being keenly sensitive to the needs of children and families.

“Where are we going? As far as God needs us to go while in His service!”
