and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” Luke 8:18
Learn More About Children's Home For Life
Children's Home For Life is a nonprofit organization that has been helping disadvantaged and neglected kids to take back control of their life. We have a residential treatment facility along with A.C.E. curriculum schooling. Our organization was founded in 2011.
We opened our first outreach center in Jonesboro, Arkansas in December 2012. Our work began with the Craighead, Greene and Poinsett County District Court and Judges, to provide services for their juvenile departments. We created and implemented numerous programs for the courts, including our EOP program with equine-assisted therapy, Drug Court program and community service weekends. We also founded our non-denominational church, Home for Life Ministries in Jonesboro. Read about our board of directors.
In 2014, we opened our second outreach center in Brookland, AR. We began providing summer programs, school programs and even started our own A.C.E.-accredited school. Our foundation's program allows students, ranch kids and kids from around the region, ages 8-18, to learn about horticulture, animal science, carpentry, plumbing, home economics and mechanics.
We had also paired with Families Inc. counseling services to allow therapy groups to come to our facilities. They worked closely with our staff and animals in order to associate and work with the children.

Future Plans to Build H4L Ranch Inc.
In December 2016, we were blessed with a generous donation of 157 acres of land and have since combined the Brookland operations with the ranch in Finch. We are now able to move on to Phase II of our long-term plan titled H4L Ranch Inc.
This working ranch is located in a secluded setting in Finch, AR and it will be developed into a working campus within the next two years. We'll be able to house over 100 children ages 8-18, male and female, in a family-style setting.
Each home will have no more than 8 kids at any given time, who will be cared for by a set of qualified and Christian house parents. At the center of the campus, you'll find our school, recreation facility, common areas, a sanctuary, mess hall, a general store, nurses' offices, as well as our therapists who will be working one-on-one with the children on a daily basis. Our sanctuary is now under construction. The first house is already in place.
Our campaign continues to raise funds for the ranch as we run solely on donations from the community. If you are willing to donate or volunteer, call us today at 870-273-5376 or fill out the contact form, and one of our members will get in touch with you.
