The Children's Home of Virginia Baptist, Inc. (CHVB) is a significant resource in the Baptist community.  It is one of the largest facilities of its type in Virginia in terms of land available on which the potential lies to develop a myriad of Christian ministries.

Statistical reports reveal that children and families across the State are in trouble on many fronts!  The categories of need include high rates of teen pregnancy reduce teen pregnancy, high poverty rates, high drop-out rates (especially for black males), undiagnosed, untreated and unaddressed mental health and emotional issues, loss of hope in a future, parental struggles (especially for single parents with limited financial and emotional support) and unemployment. 

In response, The Children’s Home of Virginia Baptist, Inc. (CHVB) is committed to offering an array of relevant service ministries such as spiritual growth and development, conferences/retreats, parenting classes, after-school and summer enrichment programs, as well as, goal-oriented supervised work experience opportunities.

Our newest effort is the CHVB Child Development Center.  The facility provides services to children in the age range of 2 years 6 months through 12 years of age. 

As a religious organization with a long history of “saving children”, The Children’s Home of Virginia Baptist, Inc. is available and willing to continue that legacy. The two parent bodies – The Baptist General Convention of Virginia and The Virginia Baptist State Convention and their member churches fully support the Home’s mission and re-direction.  An active Board of Trustees provides governance and an Administrator oversees the daily operations. 
 
Mission
The mission of the Children's Home of Virginia Baptist Inc. (CHVB) is to serve God through family, children and youth service ministries that strengthen families and improve the quality of life.
