                Support your state's Baptist Children's Home

Take an interest in your state's Baptist Children's Home and the services they offer. I volunteer, donate, and work for the Illinois Baptist Children's Home & Family Services. Illinois BCHFS offers residential care for children and teens, maternity care and adoption, and outpatient counseling services.

      Every year, BCHFS has a quilt auction to raise funds for the many services they provide. So many people work diligently throughout the year creating the quilts as a donation. My husband and I love the quilt auction and are collecting very meaningful heirlooms that we can give our children. Pictured here with me is a past BCH resident who is very thankful they were here when he needed care as a child.
