In 1894, a Civil War widow began caring for orphaned children in her home, unaware that her work would be the beginning of Boys and Girls Home and Family Services, Inc. Over 100 years later, many things have changed, yet our mission remains the same: “We Change Lives.” For children of all ages, as well as adults, this is the place to find help.
