Hope in a Time of Crisis
Our presence affords these children the loving support they so desperately need in the midst of their crisis, as well as a window of hope and a promise for a better tomorrow.
WCH is the only licensed emergency shelter in the Wiregrass area providing care to children birth to 18 years of age. Our goal is to extend as much love and comfort as possible during this critical time in a child’s life, reaching out to meet their every need whether it be physical, spiritual, emotional or mental.
Since opening our doors in 1989, the Wiregrass Children’s Home has served more than 700 children; some for only one night, yet others for multiple years. We are capable of caring for up to 10 children at any given time, with placement being coordinated through referrals from the Alabama Department of Human Resources. We welcome boys and girls, as well as siblings, providing the first step to a new life and the rebuilding of a new future.
The Wiregrass Children’s Home, a 501c3 Non-Profit, ministers to abused and neglected children of the Wiregrass Area. Along with providing food, clothing and shelter to those children, WCH believes in offering a happy, loving and secure Christian environment – ultimately a Bridge to Brighter Futures.
