Hillcrest Children's Home

Hillcrest Children's HomeHillcrest Children's Home is a private Christian residential childcare campus established in 1944 as a national Assemblies of God childcare ministry to abused, neglected, and sexually exploited children.

Mission

To rescue children from harm's way, restore broken hearts and spirits... rekindling hope for a child's bright future.

Restoring America's Broken Children

  • Home for the homeless
  • Love for the unloved
  • Security for the neglected, abused, and sexually exploited

Some arrive frightened, abused, and frustrated; others, undernourished and neglected. They have been removed from their homes because of neglectful parents or have suffered the heartbreak of a home shattered by divorce, abuse, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, violence or have tragically lost one or both parents. These are the children who come to Hillcrest Children's Home. It takes time, prayer, tender care and warm Christian love to erase the effects of these tragic experiences. Restoring hope for victims of abuse and neglect can take several years given the devastating effects of repeated offenses. Without holistic residential care, victims generally return to an abusive lifestyle.

Hillcrest focuses on intervention and restoration by providing the loving home and care every child needs and deserves in their developing years. Life at Hillcrest addresses the spiritual, physical, emotional, mental and educational needs of each child as they are restored to new life.

Referrals come from the state, pastors, private placements, court orders, churches, friends of Hillcrest and relatives of hurting children. Boys and girls come to Hillcrest having experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment or the divorce or death of their parents. The caring Christian environment at Hillcrest is designed to demonstrate love to these broken children and youth.

Children and youth (ages 5-18), grouped by age and gender, are provided a homelike atmosphere in the homes on campus that are referred to as Hillcrest Cottages with balanced diets, proper clothing, medical/dental/optical checkups to ensure their physical well-being. The children attend school and a local Assemblies of God church. A loving home environment, daily devotions, Biblical counseling, chapel services and regular church attendance minister to their spiritual needs. Hillcrest also has a College Fund available for its senior high school students as they pursue their next level of education following graduation.
