Wheels 4 Kids

 

Doctor appointments. Court hearings. School activities. Church. Counseling sessions. Family outings.  

These locales are but a few of the many where ABCHomes kids are transported each day. ABCHomes’ vehicles travel thousands of miles each year all over Monticello, Harrison, Little Rock, Jonesboro, Paragould, Judsonia, West Fork and many other places. 

As a result, ABCHomes must have safe and reliable vehicles for its precious cargo. ABCHomes administrative staff need the help of generous donors to purchase new wheels - wheels with vehicles attached!

ABCHomes’ most pressing needs and vehicles to be replaced include:

 

Two vans at the Baptist Home for Children in Monticello:

  • A 13-year-old, 15-passenger van.
  • A 2008 Dodge Caravan. This mini-van is used for transportation to doctor appointments, court hearings and counseling sessions, among others.  It will be transferred to another ABCHomes location with less travel needs. This minivan saves gas expense when a 15-passenger is not needed.

 

A van at the Paragould 

Emergency Home:

  • 2004 Ford, 15-passenger van. This van is used to transport children who come to ABCHomes anytime, day or night. They often come from unspeakable situations.

 

A vehicle for ABCHomes Director of Communications

  • The director’s current Honda Odyssey is seven years old with 129,000 miles. It will be transferred to another ABCHomes location with less travel needs. Frequently, the director travels the state telling the story of how ABCHomes is making a difference in the lives of children and families in crisis. She also transports loads of donations from generous donors, like you, to all ABCHomes’ locations.

ABCHomes invites donors to help defray the costs of purchasing vehicles that are used to minister to youngsters in ABCHomes care who often have many emotional, physical, educational and spiritual needs. A goal of $100,000 is required to purchase these much-needed vehicles.
