Boys Home is a St. Nicholas Day Appeal Recipient! 

We are excited to announce that we have been chosen as one of two recipients for   this year’s St. Nicholas Day Appeal. Awarded annually by the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia, this grant supports the mission and ministry of the Church and is entirely funded by donations from members of the Diocese.

The grant we receive this year will provide furnishings and appliances for our newly renovated Darling Cottage, which will house eight of our older boys and their two houseparents. The other recipient is a lunch program founded and hosted by Trinity Episcopal Church in Staunton.

To donate, please mail a check to the Diocesan office at 1002 1st Roanoke, VA 24016, or donate online. Please share this with your congregation, friends, and neighbors!

WHSV-3 from Harrisonburg, VA, ran a great report on the tree farm titled, “Youth Build Skills at Christmas Tree Farm.” For video of the full report, click here.
