Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina (BCH) brings hope and healing to
children and families in crisis. For more than 125 years,  the nonprofit has offered caring
homes to countless boys and girls who come from circumstances ranging from family
dysfunction to situations of abuse, neglect and abandonment.

The organization provides a myriad of services including children's residential care,
family care for single mothers and their children, homes for developmentally disabled
adults, weekday education, and a resource-based program for aging adults.

BCH and its highly-trained staff serve all 100 counties through 23 facilities
in 19 North Carolina communities.


Powers flourishes at Kennedy Home The white carriage ceremonially travels the newly paved road leading to historic Cedar Dell while guests, alumni and residents along the way wave and shout greetings to Captain William Lafayette Kennedy, portrayed by Kennedy Home alum and Baptist Children's Homes' (BCH) Trustee Jim Dyer, and Kennedy's wife Emily, portrayed by Kennedy Home alumna Doris Hartley Powers. The duo garbed in period clothing transpose onlookers to the time of the founding of Kennedy Home 100 years ago.
