T he Shepherd’s Place Children’s Home and Academy is available for school-age children who are in need of care.  We provide a loving environment in which they can stay and get a quality education to help equip them for a bright future.

Our theme at The Shepherd’s Place is “There’s a Better Way.”  In all of life’s challenges there is always hope and a better way forward to be discovered.

Thank you for your interest in helping us help children.  We appreciate your prayers and support.
