Back to School

When Cory arrived at the Baptist Home for Children in 2013, he had been labeled as a “troubled” kid by his former school district. His grades were lacking at best. He was failing his English class.

But over the last year, the middle schooler’s grades have drastically improved, with the aid and support of his houseparents, tutors and teachers in Monticello. By the end of the 2014 Spring semester, Cory’s English grade was an A. He finished the last nine weeks on the A/B Honor Roll.

That is why your support is so vital! In the upcoming school year, $425 will help outfit a growing child with clothes, shoes and school supplies. Others need special equipment in order to participate in sports, band and other extracurricular activities.

We invite you to help us defray the costs of preparing youngsters in our care who will be starting school in a few weeks. Will you help us equip youngsters like Cory for a bright future?

With the new school year right around the corner, consider what your part should be. Our students need your help to become what God wants them to be. Your gift can help a child like Cory learn to work hard and succeed. It may not happen without you.

When the school bell rings on the first day of classes at Monticello Middle School, Cory will no doubt be excited and eager to begin a new year of school and meet new friends. Cory’s enthusiasm is a result of generous donors like you whose gifts help us make a difference in the lives of many children every day.

Can our children count on your support this year? Any gift received will help our kids start the school year off right and help meet other ministry needs. Thank you for giving and continue to pray for our children.

On behalf of our children,

David W. Perry
Executive Director
