Faith Foundation Children’s Home was founded through the vision of Pastor Buck Proffer, Pastor Janice Proffer, and the members of Faith Tabernacle World Outreach Inc. The home was originally licensed through Valley Springs Youth Ranch in 2000 until it completed its own license in 2002. At that time, FFCH consisted of one treatment site, (now known as Grace House for girls up to 24 girls), for twenty (20) male youth, ages 8–18, located outside of Fredericktown, Missouri. Shortly after that, four additional individual rooms were added to the original site to accommodate those youth requiring a private sleeping area to meet their treatment needs. In addition to the treatment site, the agency has an activity building which includes a gymnasium and several smaller rooms to include arts and crafts, family visiting rooms, a theater and musical room. The school was relocated in 2009 to the Administrative Building.
Peaceful Valley is currently under a huge renovation to better suit the needs of the youth and the State
FFCH has developed and implemented its Aftercare Services Program for intensive aftercare services for those youth that meet the eligibility requirements and are within Faith’s contract area. This aftercare service has proven to be a valuable tool for the families and children that are reunited to assist them in becoming successful functioning family units.
FFCH is working diligently to provide Therapeutic Foster Care homes to the youth they serve and look to have this program available within the near future.
FFCH is fully accredited through COA.
FFCH is now also licensed to accommodate Level 4 state classified youth at 4 facilities to help meet the needs of youth that require a more restrictive environment.
All in all, what started out as a 20 bed facility has grown to serve over 140 plus children which includes our Aftercare Services Program. We are excited for the future and the continuing opportunity to serve the needs of the children.
