Christian Children's Home of Ohio

Summary

Our Children's Residential Center provides a safe structured environment to meet the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs of children from all across Ohio who have been abused, neglected and traumatized by the people they should be able to trust most. Children ages 6-18 live in spacious cottages and are provided with therapeutic, social, spiritual and educational opportunities designed to aid the child with the healing process, model for them how a healthy family functions, develop coping and life skills, and introduce them to Jesus Christ.

We are licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health, and accredited by the Council on Accreditation, and the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). We provide a safe environment where abused and neglected children find healing, discover hope and experience unconditional love.

History

One young boy in need set in motion a ministry in Wooster, OH that has provided hope and healing to hundreds of children whose lives have been turned upside down by abuse, neglect and trauma of all kinds. In March of 1969, a serene 175-acre farm in Wooster became known as the Christian Children's Home of Ohio (CCHO) when members of the independent Christian Churches/Churches of Christ movement learned of a local boy with no safe place to call home. Initially licensed as a foster/group home serving three to five children at one time, CCHO now has five cottages on its campus that are home to as many as 36 at-risk kids at once, children who need to know that they are loved, they are valued and they are finally safe.

The first residential cottage was built in 1975 to serve 10-12 teenagers in addition to the married couple who worked as live-in houseparents. That same year, the original office building was built, a space that has since been remodeled multiple times to meet the ever increasing and changing needs of the administrative staff. Cottage #2 was built seven years later, Cottage #3 opened in 1983, the Kids Cottage was built in 1991 and Cottage #4 opened in 2003.

In 1995, CCHO introduced Poplar Ridge Stables (now One Heart Stables), an equine therapy program that not only teaches the children the importance of responsibility and care for the horses, but also provides a number of physical and emotional benefits for riders who suffer from ADD/ADHD, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, sight and speech disorders, and a number of other health diagnoses.

CCHO became licensed as an adoption agency in 1997; in 2006, the organization received COA accreditation; and in 2009, Intensive Residential Treatment Program and Certified Trauma Therapy began.

With support from dozens of churches, community organizations and a host of caring individuals along with the hard work of more than 150 employees and oversight from our Board of Trustees, CCHO exists to help people experience their worth in Christ as a licensed Child Care Agency by the Ohio Department of Human Services. We are grateful and humbled by the work God has done through CCHO, and we can't wait to see what He does over the next 50 years!
