Our Seventh Annual Great Grill Off takes place during our 50th anniversary year! As we gear up for this summer favorite event (now just five weeks away), we invite you to learn more about the roots of our organization.
When CCHO opened in 1969, the vision of our founders was both simple and profound: a place where kids and God could meet. We are grateful that their vision has not only been fulfilled, but that it’s grown into our purpose of helping children, adults and families experience their worth in Christ.
In those 50 years, CCHO has expanded in so many ways. We now have four residential cottages on our campus housing as many as 36 kids at a time; we’ve developed a variety of therapeutic approaches to meet the mental, emotional, physical, recreational and spiritual needs of each of our young residents; we offer equine-assisted therapy from One Heart Stables on our Wooster campus; and today, our family of ministries includes Encompass Christian Counseling and Encourage Foster Care.
To commemorate our 50th anniversary, we will be sharing stories of the lives that have been forever changed by the work God has done through our family of ministries. Peruse the first nine stories here and check back throughout the year for more stories from this series.
We look forward to sharing this special anniversary with you on Sunday, June 9! So gather friends and family to taste delicious sliders and picnic classics and enjoy a host of family activities at our Seventh Annual Great Grill Off!
