Our organization has been serving Carter County and surrounding areas for over 40 years. We support the family and children and our community in their time of need and work towards a grater good. We help those seeking help and do not discriminate. Thank you to the Community Children's Shelters many contributors.

They come to us at all hours, escorted by policemen or Department of Human Service Workers. They are tall, short, innocent and street wise. They are different ages, different sizes and different colors. They are scared, angry and crying. Here at the shelter, there are many questions we cannot answer, but we do what we do very well and that is to provide shelter for our displaced children. It is simple and as complex as that.
