The Board of Directors for the Delta Children’s Home is actively involved in the lives of the families, providing additional activities for the children. Some of these activities include birthday parties, additional clothing, fees for baseball teams, sports camps, and piano lessons.
The Delta Children’s Home is primarily funded through private donations from individuals, clubs, churches, businesses and other community organizations. Without the generous donations from our community, DCH simply could not continue to serve the children who so desperately need a place to call home. Two of our largest annual fundraisers include the annual Delta Children’s Home Auction each fall and the Sheryl Crow Birthday Drive early each year. Combined, these two events cover nearly half of our budgetary needs.
Delta Children’s Home operates two homes in Kennett, Missouri, located in the “bootheel” of the state. State licensed foster parents provide a Christian home-like environment, loving and encouraging the resident children. They provide meals, assistance with homework, and help serve as role models that the boys and girls can look up to.
