Since 1886, Missouri Baptist Children’s Home has been providing care to children and families. Of course, the services have changed over the years from being an orphanage in the early years to now providing residential and community-based services across Missouri.
While our services have changed, our commitment to being the agency of choice has not changed. In addition and most importantly, we want to do our ministries in a way that honors Christ. It is because of Him and our desire to follow Him that we exist. We strive to please Him and to serve Him by ministering to the “least of these.” Our mission statement states that we are committed to serving God by responding to the needs of children, youth, and families to make a lasting difference in their lives.
Thank you for visiting our website and learning more about Missouri Baptist Children’s Home and its various ministries. Together, we are making a difference.

DED awards $62,132 in Neighborhood Assistance Program tax credits to Springfield area not-for-profit organization
SPRINGFIELD – The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) today announced that MBCH Children and Family Ministries has been approved for $62,132 in state tax credits under the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP). The approved project is part of approximately $6.6 million approved in the second round of NAP applications for FY 2013.
MBCH Children and Family Ministries will utilize these NAP funds to expand its Springfield Family Resource Development Program. The program recruits, trains and assesses foster homes and provides ongoing support to families to ensure that children who have been victims of abuse and neglect maintain placement, increasing the child’s ability to become successful.
DED administers the Neighborhood Assistance Program that helps not-for-profit organizations and raise private-sector funds by providing partial state tax credits to businesses that make contributions to approved community improvement projects.
Businesses can donate cash, materials, supplies or equipment; technical assistance and professional services; labor; real estate; or stocks and bonds. Credits can equal up to 50 percent of the total amount contributed.
Not-for-profit organizations participating in the NAP program conduct capital campaigns or provide services in the areas of crime prevention, education, job training, physical revitalizations, or community services. The Neighborhood Assistance Program is utilized by not-for-profit organizations throughout Missouri to make their communities a more desirable place to live and work, as well as pave the way for economic development.
