Adolescence can become a time of crisis in the life of any family. With today’s cultural pressures and expectations, even healthy families often find themselves unprepared to deal with difficulties that arise during their child’s teen years. If this sounds like your family, we want to assure you that you are not alone. At BCH Residential Care, we are passionate about restoring families and helping teens thrive!
Baptist Children’s Home Residential Care is our Christian group home for troubled teens located in Carmi, IL. Driven by faith in Christ, our team of experts are dedicated to helping bring transformation and real heart change to teenagers who seem out of control.
BCH Residential Care differs greatly from some other “defiant teen programs” in that we are not a clinical, sterile or lock-down facility. Our students live in one of our eight-capacity cottages under the constant care and guidance of loving, Christian houseparents.
Through individual, group and family counseling, teens learn to identify and move away from self-defeating habits and defiant behavior patterns. Likewise, our staff will help each teen uncover his/her strengths in order to guide them toward more positive, outwardly focused activities. Students also learn to trust and build strong relationships through team building exercises and therapeutic recreation.
By giving special care to the educational, spiritual and emotional growth of each student, we strive to help them build character and discover a brand new vision for their life.
