The Children's Home is a community of volunteers, workers and supporters, pouring their efforts together to make life better for children who need to see that caring and love do exist in a world that has often been unfair and unjust. Since the Home opened its doors in 1954, over 6,000 children have been helped through the Home's services.
Praised by licensure reviews as one of the best programs in the State of Texas, the Children's Home places a strong emphasis on family rehabilitation, with programs of care designed for children and their families.
On any given day an average of 145 boys and girls are in care in the various programs of The Children's Home of Lubbock.
The Children's Home is licensed and reimbursed for services rendered by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and meets or exceeds all standards established for out-of-home care of children.
Children are served without regard to their race, religion, or national origin.
The Children's Home has a debt-free modern group care campus, designed to serve 90 children on any given day. Forty-five to sixty more children are served in other programs at the Home.
All child care staff receive more than 50 hours of training each year.
Spiritual training is a vital part of each child's life at the Home. Each cottage worships at a different congregation in the Lubbock community. Staff and children become active participants in the congregation where they worship. Spiritual training policies are set by the Board of Directors and implemented by our staff without regulation by the State. Last year the Home served 244 public sector boys and girls who would not otherwise receive the blessing of knowing about the God who loves them.
