We Are HereTo Help
In 1983, New Mexico Christian Children’s Home designed and established the Single Parent Program to help parents remain with their children as the primary caretaker. With our help, single parents get a new start, a stable home environment, advance their educational opportunities, and get their feet on the ground. Some graduate from college and become teachers, nurses, or other professionals. We help them until they can provide for themselves and their children.
A Chance To Be A Champion
At Single Parent Homes everyone has the opportunity to become a champion! Single Parents attend church, take personal growth classes and are able to sharpen their parenting skills. Children and Parents attend Bible classes tailored to their needs. A special devotional time is provided on Sunday nights that allows single parents to shop in our grocery and donation rooms while their children enjoy a supervised playtime. Children are given opportunities to participate in Leadership Training for Christ, 4-H and many other extra activities.
We have three different locations for our apartments, which allows us to place families where they would be best suited. Living at the Home provides stability for children. A kid just needs a chance to be a champion. NMCCH Single Parent Homes for Children provides that opportunity.
A Hand Up
Single Parent Homes is not a welfare program. In fact, we help single parents get off welfare and become self-supporting! It is the difference between a hand up, and a hand out.
It’s a temporary assistance program, for one to four years, depending on needs identified in a professionally tailored, individual education, employment or career plan.
