About Us

Our History

Founded in August of 1934 by Baptist officials and leaders, Children's Baptist Home located in Inglewood, California, had more than 100 beds and served thousands of homeless children, ages 6 to 16. For many years, the home was solely dependent upon local Baptists churches and received no local, state or national funding.

In 1990, Children's Baptist Home moved to the San Fernando Valley and became what is now known as Children's Homes of Southern California, a nonprofit organization that provides residential care and other vital services to teenage boys, ages eleven through seventeen, in Los Angeles County.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to improve the lives of young men by meeting their emotional, psychological and basic needs in a safe and nurturing environment.
