What We Do
Where Hope Grows. Palmer Home provides superior care to children through four specialized services. By meeting each child at their stage in life, Palmer Home provides healing and support, allowing children to grow and thrive. What Do We Provide? CAMPUS CARE Our residential campus for children provides a Christ-centered family atmosphere where children feel safe, connected to trustworthy adults, and supported as they grow and develop in our care. Each child is placed with a caregiver couple in one of our six on-campus homes. FOSTER CARE Our foster care program allows children the opportunity to experience the support and connection of a family while in the care of Palmer Home. We provide private foster care through Palmer Home certified families. FAMILY CARE Our Jonah’s Journey ministry provides nurturing care for the infants of mothers in prison. Additionally, we provide support to mothers in prison and after release. With reunification as the ultimate goal, our certified foster families work to cultivate the bond between the mother and child in their care TRANSITIONAL CARE Our transitional program provides continued guidance and coaching for children between the ages of 18 – 24. Our goal is to prepare each child for independence through career and vocational development, as well as other life-skills to succeed as young adults.
