Founded in 1966, Calvary Children’s Home is a home for children in the Metro Atlanta area that need to live apart from their families. Calvary provides a safe, loving, Christian home for children while providing them with a stable home life. They strive to give each child the very best skills, education, and values so that they may become responsible & productive members of society. Attending church, local schools, and participating in after school and community activities provide a sense of normalcy and gives their children experience in the real world. Calvary depends on friends and volunteers from the community to provide the best possible home for these children. Your interest and support is also important because of the encouragement it provides. It demonstrates to the children that they are important when others take such an interest in them. There are a number of ways for you to get involved with serving or giving.

One simple thing will make a big difference in the life of an at-risk child: One-on-one, positive attention from a responsible, caring adult. Kids Hope USA develops these one-on-one relationships through the creation of church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk kids in supportive, mentoring relationships. Kids Hope USA mentors spend just one hour per week at Vaughan Elementary School in Powder Springs, during school hours (8:15am-2:45pm) reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed. You can change a life…and that’s no small change.
