The Presbyterian Children’s Home of the Highlands in Wytheville, Virginia, began in 1919 as a home for six girls. In its 100th year, the home now houses boys and girls of all ages and from situations varying from parents’ abuse of drugs or alcohol to hunger so extreme that dumpsters provide their meals. The children move into cottages overseen by 24-hour staff and are provided regular meals, on-site chapel or local church services, counseling as needed, and education at the Minnick Education Center on grounds or through public schools. In celebration of PCHH’s 100th anniversary, we are committing $1000, the “joy” level of giving, to the care of these children.
“For we have great JOY and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you…”(Philemon 1:7)
