Taunton Family Children's Home, Inc. is a privately owned haven for homeless children. It's mission is to provide a stable, loving, Christian home environment for those of God's children who have nowhere else to turn. Emphasis is placed on physical fitness, educational excellence, and the discovery and development of one's God-given potential.
The most important goal is the spiritual well-being of each child. In 1978, the first child, Adam (meaning “the first of many”) was taken into the Home. Then came Diana, James, Doug, Chris, Erica, Eddie, Billy and many, many more. Over 300 children have called Taunton Family Children's Home their “Home”.
Now, other facilities have been built; including the Steve Watkins Memorial Home, the Homer House (a multipurpose mission home) the Emily Kemp Guest Cottage and an additional Guest Cottage, a Boys Home, the Heritage Putt Putt Golf Course, and a Residential Grandparents Home, where David and Abby now reside after 35 years as “houseparents”.
