Our kids are what we are all about. We want to give them a family. We want them to know the love of their Heavenly Father and of a family here on earth. We want to give them all the tools they need to succeed in life and become responsible members or society. We operate with a smaller child-to-staff ratio because we want to give each child the best quality of life possible and that includes the attention and care that only our dedicated staff can give.
Each child that comes through our gates has been abandoned and, in most cases, abused as well. They have nowhere to turn; they are lost, broken and desperate. When they arrive we shower them with love and pray that our efforts and daily love and affection will heal their broken hearts and restore their hope for a future. These kids have lived through the unimaginable: neglect, physical, verbal, and/or sexual abuse, extreme poverty, eating out of trash cans, living on the streets, separation from siblings – you name it! But coming to City of Angels Children’s Home and being made part of a family gives them hope and puts a smile back on their face. We give them an opportunity to pursue a relationship with Christ through our devotionals and one-on-one mentoring and discipleship. Our kids are still kids and have their rough days but they are being healed and restored, learning how to build healthy relationships and knowing they are loved and wanted as part of our family through the process.
We know our Maker has great plans for each one of these precious children. We seek to meet their needs emotionally, physically, scholastically, socially, spiritually, and mentally. We provide them with healthy meals daily and help them advance in school according to their abilities. As they get older we encourage them to pursue careers they are interested in. We do not make them leave when they turn 18; instead we help them seek out a job or higher education when they are ready.
