For 116 years, the Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home has been at the forefront of supporting children and families who need it most.
Our aim is to ensure that victims of trauma, abuse, neglect, abandonment, family violence or poverty have the resources and support they need to lead healthy, productive lives.The demand for our services is at an all-time high.
Over 440,000 children nationwide are not able to live with their families as the result of the trauma, abuse, neglect and abandonment. The needs of these children are greater than public funding are able to provide. We specialize in serving adolescents, who are statistically five times as likely to age out of foster care without being adopted than younger children.
Our residential program for single parents is designed to support employed individuals who are one major, unforeseen expense from financial disaster. The Pew Research Center recently reported that they believe 83 percent of single parents have experienced job loss or employment reductions as a result of COVID-19.
You can help. Your gift of $100 provides a day of care for our residents in foster care or offers essential support to moms who are parenting their families alone during this unprecedented time.
