Where can families turn in times of crisis with their children? Costly private programs? Children's Division? Is there another option?

There is a place... Going beyond the limits of traditional foster care, children living at Show-Me Christian Youth Home receive therapeutic benefits from specialized programs in a Christ-centered, family environment. Working together, we help each child-physically, academically, emotionally, and spiritually-overcome the struggles of their past and prepare for a successful future.

It's not our obligation to help children and families in crisis-it's an opportunity to make our neighborhoods a better place for all of us.

Show-Me's methods of restoration offer more than simply a house in which kids live temporarily as they grow up. For over 50 years, children continue to find a safe, stable, loving home and family with layers of support geared toward their current and future success.

Mission statement

Show-Me Christian Youth Home is compelled by Christ to rescue and restore young lives. Since 1967, Show-Me has provided safe, stable, loving homes and families to young people struggling because of circumstances in their current home environment. From the guidance of professionals, each child finds an individualized environment with layers of support designed to help them overcome their current struggles and find success. Our Path to Purpose and Leadership U programs prepare these young people to have the confidence, wisdom, encouragement, and resources they will need as they cross the bridge to adulthood.
