Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services – Celebrating a Century of Helping Children and Families in Need in Illinois
Since 1918, Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services (BCHFS) has been a source of hope and healing, providing Christ-centered services to children and families in crisis. For the parents whose teen is out of control, the child whose home is no longer safe, the young woman facing an unexpected pregnancy, the infertile couple whose greatest dream is to be Mom and Dad, or the individual or family in need of counseling – BCHFS is here to help.
BCHFS and the four entities that make up our mission:
BCH Residential Care
Provides residential care for children who are struggling behaviorally or are the victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect. We offer four unique living cottages at our Carmi, Illinois location.
BCHFS has a partnership with Arise Africa International and their Bukaleba Babies’ Home, located in Bukaleba, Uganda. BCHFS hosts annual mission trips to Uganda in an effort to spread our ministry, while serving others.

Proud to be affiliated with Baptist Coalition for Children and Families (BCCF)
The care for the defenseless has been part of Baptist life since the Nation’s conscience turned to the orphan during the early to mid-1800s, and the Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services is honored to be acknowledged as part of the BCCF network. Learn more by clicking here.
