Presbyterian Homes and Children's Services Caring Congregations page

Since our founding more than 112 years ago, Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services has relied on communities of faith to serve children in need and their families.

Today, we highly value three relationships:

  • We value our historic Covenant Partnership with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Synod of the Sun.
  • We value our Mission Partnership with the ECO Presbyterian Church and the Presbytery of Texas and Louisiana.
  • We value our relationship with all non-Presbyterian congregations that share our commitment to provide Christ-centered care and support to children and families in need.

Special gift opportunities for caring congregations:

  • Please include us in your annual mission budget. PCHAS is an extension of your ministry into numerous Texas & Louisiana communities. Help support children and families by including PCHAS as a line item in this year’s mission budget.
  • Calling all Presbyterian Women! Join the many circles that graciously support our Christ-centered programs for at-risk children.
  • Please invite a member of our staff to make a presentation to your Mission Committee, PW circle, Men’s group, or Adult Education class by contacting a member of our development staff.
  • Consider making Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services the charitable beneficiary of this year’s Vacation Bible School. We have special curriculum material that will complement your VBS program and best of all, teach your children about our ministry.

In addition to your church’s financial commitment through annual mission giving, we invite your congregation to support Presbyterian Children’s Homes & Services in a variety of ways:

  • Receive a special offering to benefit PCHAS.
  • Sponsor group events – going to the movies, bowling or to a museum – for our kids.
  • Form a group of prayer partners for our group home program.
  • Display your Caring Congregation certificate for all to see.
  • Call 1-800-888-1904 to schedule a visit at one of our campus locations and see first-hand your congregation’s mission dollars at work.

PCHAS offers several resources at no cost to help you tell our stories of hope and courage. Please contact us to request:

  • Bulletin inserts
  • Offering envelopes
  • Minutes for mission
  • Newsletters and other updates

OUR ministry is YOUR ministry! Together we can serve children and families in need, within your church and community. Our Christ-centered services can help children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned, as well as entire families whom you know to be in need. Whether a child needs a safe, loving home or a family needs support through a crisis, we are just a phone call away at 1-800-888-1904.
