As we gear up to return to school, The Children’s Home announces our “Back to School Drive.”  With three different ways to give, we’ve made it simple for you to support our middle and high school residents. Continue scrolling to see the complete list of needed items.

Will you join us in ensuring that the kids in our care have the tools they need to SHINE when they return to school?
