Currently, there are more families in crisis and more kids in need of safe and stable homes than ever before. We want to make sure children have a safe place to rest their head at night and a family eager to greet them when they climb out of bed in the morning. Bringing all of these pieces together is not a simple task, but with your help, we can have the tools to care for children in need.

The Children’s Home Society of West Virginia is a private, non-profit child welfare organization founded in 1896. We provide comprehensive services to children and their families from multiple locations throughout the state. Over the past 127 years, we have been finding homes for West Virginia’s children, and the need for our services has never been greater.


The Children’s Home Society is committed to promoting the well-being of children. This capital campaign is a critical step in fulfilling that commitment and bringing our vision to reality. We thank our supporters in advance for their generosity and belief in our mission.

The Help Us Build a Better Future One Child at a Time campaign aims to raise $1,500,000 to ensure that we can move forward with this transformative project. Our hope is that this campaign will not only raise the necessary funds, but also engage our community and demostrate the widespread support for this initiative.  To achive our goal, we need the support of the entire community.
