We Are HereTo Help

In 1983, New Mexico Christian Children’s Home designed and established the Single Parent Program to help parents remain with their children as the primary caretaker. With our help, single parents get a new start, a stable home environment, advance their educational opportunities, and get their feet on the ground. Some graduate from college and become teachers, nurses, or other professionals. We help them until they can provide for themselves and their children.


A Chance To Be A Champion

Single Parents are expected to attend church, take personal growth classes and sharpen their parenting skills. They are within walking distance of Eastern New Mexico University, church, a grocery store, a pharmacy, a bank, school bus rides, and have access to inexpensive public transportation. Other single parents are located on our main campus, where their children participate in 4H and other activities.

Living at the Home provides stability for children. A kid just needs a chance to be a champion. NMCCH Single Parent Homes for Children provides that opportunity.

A Hand Up

The Single Parent Program is not a welfare program. In fact, we help single parents get off welfare and become self-supporting! It is the difference between a hand up, and a hand out.

It’s a temporary assistance program, for one to four years, depending on needs identified in a professionally tailored, individual education, employment or career plan.

Get Your Degree

Are you currently going to college? Or would you like to pursue a college degree? Carrying all the responsibility of providing an income for your family & raising children alone, while attending classes & studying can be quite a challenge.
