a home for children

About Us

Founded in 1971, Boys and Girls Country has been serving children for over 50 years! As a licensed residential home, we use a trauma-informed care approach when addressing the needs of the children on our campus. We do this by providing a secure, stable, Christian home environment with an emphasis on education, building healthy relationships and setting goals for the future.

Spring Festival | May 4th

Our largest community event is fun for the whole family! Join us for a day full of fun, food and festivities.

Campus Life

Our campus spans over 200 acres and accommodates multiple cottage families. Each cottage can house up to eight children and two full-time houseparents. The cottages operate as individual family units, engaging in activities together such as church, vacations and family meals.

College & Career

Becoming an adult does not happen overnight. Our College & Career program, created in 1997, supports high school graduates who are in need of continued support and guidance. We provide our young adults the opportunity to obtain a college degree, a technical certificate, enter the military or begin their career. Our young adults always have a place to call home and a family to lean on as they follow their own individual paths to adulthood.
