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 with locations in 20 North Carolina communities plus an orphanage in Guatemala.


Pillow project meets needs John, a rising junior at Raleigh Charter High School, chose as a school project to help Kennedy Home. He visited with director Brian Baltzell first. “I felt it was important I help meet a real need,” John says. “Mr. Baltzell told me they needed new pillows. He said every child who comes into care gets a new sleeping pillow.” John had his marching orders. He created a pillow collection campaign – The Pillow Project – and set a goal to provide at least 50 new, standard-size pillows.
