The mission of Haddie’s Home is to provide a Christ-centered home environment of trust and hope where girls in crisis have an opportunity to see God fulfill His purpose for their lives. We will glorify God by creating and maintaining a premier facility for placement of girls in crisis, while being the hands of Christ, helping to shape the heart and future of the girls who will live there.
For such a time as this
Our initial home is for girls, ages 6 to 18, who come by referral from individuals, agencies and churches. Philip and T. R. Amason are serving as the first house parents. We have been blessed with the use of an existing home on a large tract of land in Lee County, Alabama, complete with a backyard swimming pool.
We have horses with plenty of space for riding, and the care of horses is proven to be therapeutic for the children. There is a garden, which the girls have helped to plant this spring and will help to harvest this summer.
Each day they are given individual responsibilities and learn new things—lessons that will ultimately guide them in establishing a healthy life and family of their own.
Future plans are to build four to six children’s homes, with homes for boys on a separate property. In addition to homes, we envision an administration building and a counseling/learning resource center where social workers and counselors can meet with family members and children can be given special attention for educational needs.
Each home will have house parents—a mother and father—who will be carefully screened, interviewed, and approved by the board of directors prior to hiring. We plan to have a playground and recreational field for games and group activities to encourage a sense of community among the families. The homes will function as families – diverse but unified, with Christ at the center.
“The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me;
