Our four new homes – adorned with the words “heart,” “soul,” ‘strength,” and “mind” – opened on Friday, July 28th, 2017, to house up to 32 children.

On that momentous day, we celebrated with the ribbon cutting of the Curt, Cliff & Opal Young Children’s Home, located at 8800 Young Home Drive, at Chaffee Crossing, in Fort Smith, AR, which began taking children on July 31st.

The four homes, each accommodating up to 8 children, were intentionally designed to look like a residential neighborhood, with free standing houses with backyards. Each house is approximately 2,750-square-feet with four bedrooms and two bathrooms for the children, a master bedroom and bathroom for the foster parents and an open-concept living area, kitchen and study.

Most of the Young Children’s Home was paid for with a $1.875 million gift from the Curt, Cliff & Opal Young Trust. The remaining funds came from donations through individuals, churches corporations, and other organizations.

The goal is to keep siblings together, and having four designated bedrooms in each house makes it easier to keep siblings under one roof. It is difficult to find a foster home that can take three or four kids, and we are delighted with the opportunity that God has placed in our hands to now serve children in this capacity.

We are very thankful to God for the ministry of FWB Family Ministries. Ruth and I met while living at the Children's Home in the 70's. We were engaged there and later married at Harris Memorial FWB Church near the campus. Our wedding was performed by Rev. James Earl Raper, the Superintendent at the time we lived there. We just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary on August 6, 2012. God is so good. We became Christians there and began our life as a couple there, Thank you FWBFM.
