What We Do
Albuquerque Christian Children’s Home, a non-profit organization, is dedicated to providing the very best physical, psychological, and spiritual care for school-aged children who have been neglected, abused, or in need of supervision. We care for these children without regard for their race, religion, culture, national origin, financial status, or social status. Our long-term residential care is provided through a family setting centered around Christian love, example, and teaching. We strive to instill individual worth in each child while preparing them for responsible adulthood. Where possible, we work to reunite each child with his/her family.
Our children attend Albuquerque Public Schools, and are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities such as sports, music and even R.O.T.C. The older children anticipate getting their drivers license and attending college. The houseparents and staff help the children with homework, direct them toward responsibility such as house chores and high ideals of love, discipline, support, and example, as well as teaching them about God’s unconditional Love.
The children attend church regularly with their houseparents. They participate in church activities and attend Bible study classes. Many children continue in their spiritual walk after leaving ACCH.
