About Grandfather Home for Children
Grandfather Home for Children is a Christian ministry providing love and healing for more than 500 children each year. The children in their care have experienced deep hurt from unimaginable abuse, neglect and sometimes both.
On their beautiful, historic campus in Banner Elk, North Carolina, generations of children have been given a warm and comfortable bed with nurturing caregivers who help give them much-needed direction. Today, the campus hosts residential care programs and serves as the hub for several carefully-targeted services stretching from the Carolina mountains west of Asheville to the sand hills east of Raleigh.
Our caring staff works with their children to resolve their hurt and to provide acceptance, hope and new life skills to overcome the challenges they face. They strive to mend families whenever possible, and they involve parents in treatment initiatives. If a child cannot be reunited with his or her biological family, they work to place the child with a trained foster family, and eventually an adoptive family. They understand a loving family environment is crucial for children to develop and thrive, so they provide support to all their foster and adoptive families so they have the resources needed to nurture their children.
Prayer and strong private financial support are essential to sustain and improve their ministry’s work.
