This year marks the 125th year that Carrie Steele-Pitts Home has been providing a Home for the most vulnerable children in our community. Children who are survivors of unthinkable abuse, neglect and abandonment have found peace and healing while living at Carrie Steele-Pitts Home. As one of the oldest homes for children in the United States, Carrie Steele-Pitts Home is still a safe, warm place for youth who are already world weary.
Please consider a gift to Carrie Steele-Pitts Home to support a child in need.
Why support Carrie Steele-Pitts Home?
- We have a proven track record in raising children to be self-sufficient and contributing adults.
- We have a 100% high school graduation rate, with five youth currently enrolled in college.
- We have successful partnerships with community organizations, non-profits, churches and the corporate community—each bringing a unique skill set necessary to prepare the youth for college and advanced training.
- We have provided a Home for over 25,000 children in our 125-year history.
At Carrie Steele-Pitts Home, we are raising young people to reach their highest potential. Child rearing should not rely on magical formulas, particularly with children who have been hurt. Raising vulnerable children requires a steadfast commitment. Our legacy confirms that with patience, laughter, love and forgiveness, the children meet high expectations and go on to live productive lives.
The belief “it takes a village to raise a child” is taken very seriously at Carrie Steele-Pitts Home. Your gift will be used to give the children a chance to experience the delights of the childhood that was almost stolen from them. In the New Year, as we have for the past 125 years, we will continue to teach the youth the skills and values that are essential for them to effectively pursue their hopes and dreams for the future. We are depending on your generosity to help Carrie Steele-Pitts Home be a place for children to heal, grow, learn, and dream.
Your gracious contribution will allow us to continue the magnificent legacy of this beloved Home and provide care for thousands of children well into the future.
The Carrie Steele-Pitts Home family wishes you and your family a happy and safe Holiday Season.
