About Us


Our Mission: Georgia Baptist Children's Homes & Family Ministries is a Christian caring ministry of services designed to promote the spiritual, physical and emotional well-being of children, youth and families. 
How Making we're making the impossible become I'm Possible
Today, we are seeing children who come from more traumatic situations and have a much higher need for care. Poverty, grandparents raising grandchildren, substance abuse in the home, human trafficking, extreme abuse, and more complex behavioral issues have created a need for more intense care and therapy for our children. These children come from impossible situations

Yet, the Bible assures us that what is impossible for us is possible through God:  Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26) We teach our children how to take an impossible problem and turn it into an I'm Possible answer.

Every day, we have the opportunity to show these children their dreams are possible; their success is possible; THEY are possible through the hands of a loving God. Whether they are overcoming abuse, a difficult family situation, an unplanned pregnancy, behavioral issues, commercial exploitation, or learning to thrive with a developmental disability - we help them discover the realm of possibility already in them.

Our goal is to provide every child in our care the opportunity to overcome their impossible situation through these ministries:


Campus Residential Programs: These ministries provide residential care for troubled children, youth, and families.  Christ-centered programs on three campuses, located in Baxley, Meansville, and Palmetto, work together to meet the basic physical needs of our children, as well as assist them in personal development and spiritual growth.


Group Home Residential Care:  Available in communities across the state, these group homes have the capacity to serve five to eight children. We have group homes located in Brooks, Carrollton and Newnan.


Maternity Care:  Our maternity program includes a facility on the Palmetto campus providing a safe place for pregnant young women and guidance for unwed mothers and their child.


Specialty Residential Care: This program evaluates the physical, mental, psychological, emotional, and spiritual needs of a child and serves children with higher emotional needs, including children who have been victimized, on a long-term basis.


Camp Hawkins: This summer camping program is designed to meet the needs of children with developmental disabilities. This ministry has expanded to include a weekend respite care program called "Matthew's Time" for children with more severe disabilities.   
Good Shepherd Therapeutic Center: Located in Warm Springs, Georgia, this unique farm based residential program for boys provides both short and long-term care and offers an outpatient therapeutic riding program.
Family Foster Care: Our foster care program provides foster homes in the South Metro-Atlanta area.


Community Child and Adolescent Services: We offer a full range of coordinated mental health and community support services including individual counseling, family counseling, psychiatric services, nursing services and pharmacological services.
