The youth that come to Heartland Children & Youth Homes often come from a background of trauma and may have been in foster care, adopted, or another difficult home life situation. They may exhibit defiant behavior, struggle academically, and also be in need of the Gospel. If you have a child under 15 who needs additional support and help, please call us for more information.
HCYH provide a place of nurture, hope, and accountability for children and teenagers in a loving and godly environment, with the goal of educating and equipping young people to fulfill their future purpose in life as they develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We implement these core values into the lives of the children under our care:
•Responsibility – The ability to be accountable for ones’ behavior, attitude, situation, and decision making (1 Cor. 3:8).
•Stewardship – The ability to utilize and manage all resources God provides for His glory and the betterment of His Kingdom.
•Sanctity for human life – The understanding that all human life has inherit value and sacredness due to being made in the image of God (Gen. 1:26-27).
•Biblical character – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, generosity, gratitude and self-control (Gal. 5:16-26).
•Discipleship – Training up youth and children to be dedicated and submitted followers of Jesus by way of the teachings in the Bible, and to be active members of the Church.
•Communication – The ability to express intelligibly and comprehensively one’s position, feelings, and intentions; as well as possessing the skills to listen effectively with God and others.
