About Mountain States Children’s Home

Our Mission Statement

Mountain States Children’s Home extends Christian services to wounded children in an effort to meet their physical needs, heal their emotional hurts, challenge their minds and teach them moral principles, in order to reach the goals of reuniting them with their families or preparing them for independence.  This is accomplished utilizing a family model of care, strengthened by professional counselors and teachers.
