2013 Annual Report


CHILDREN AT HEART MINISTRIES TODD ROBERSON, President / CEO Annual reports are necessary, but I must confess that it’s not my nature to look back and dwell long on the past. I’d rather be looking forward. That’s especially true this year because we just wrapped up a comprehensive strategic plan for the future of Children At Heart Ministries.

We recognize that nothing we hope to do or have done in the past would be possible without God’s direction and blessing.

The way we approached strategic planning was a little bit different than what you might find in society as a whole. To begin with, at the beginning of each of many (many, many, many!) meetings to work on the plan, we began with prayer. We recognize that nothing we hope to do or have done in the past would be possible without God’s direction and blessing. Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. (Psalm 37:5) As each of our ministries looks to the future, we ask ourselves three questions: What is God’s will for the children and families we are called to serve? What is God’s will for the stewardship of the resources entrusted to us? What is God’s will for the future of our family of ministries? When you read this Annual Report for 2013, you will see many good things, including thousands of children and families who were helped, and snippets of impactful success stories. However, we are convinced that even better things are ahead as we continue to join God in what He is doing all around us.

Nothing we accomplish would be possible without God’s leadership. That has been true since we opened our doors to children in need in September of 1950. It is still true today. It will be true tomorrow. We are so thankful for the staff, volunteers and donors who help make it possible for God’s face to shine through our ministries and on those we serve. We thank you for a truly blessed 2013 and we look forward to being at your side as we follow God into the future.


We were able to treat each person as a valued individual and, in most cases, find solutions that allowed for healing and hope.

CHILDREN AT HEART MINISTRIES DON FORRESTER, Vice President for Programs and Services I am privileged to work with some of the most talented and caring people you could ever find – the leadership and staff at Gracewood, Miracle Farm, STARRY and Texas Baptist Children’s Home. What is particularly impressive is their willingness to help children, families and single mothers recover from some of the most severe trauma imaginable. Over the past few years, there has been a shift in the way our ministries approach the needs of people who come to our doors for help. At its simplest, we are asked to understand that people are often in our care because of trauma they have suffered. For social service professionals, this is known as “trauma-informed care.” Sometimes the result of trauma is painfully obvious. The child may have identifiable learning disabilities, physical health issues, an inability to form meaningful attachments with others, or behavior issues. Other times it is not as easy to discern. A child may be very appropriate socially and behaviorally for extended periods of time and then unravel emotionally over what appears to be the smallest challenge. In every instance, our case workers, family life coordinators, child care specialists, house parents and counselors are asked to take the extra step to dig a little deeper, to provide personal, individual care that addresses the emotional or physical trauma that brought someone to our ministries seeking help. During 2013, the Children At Heart family of ministries touched more than 15,000 lives that had been affected by trauma, in an area that reached from Round Rock as far north as Stephenville and as far east as Houston. While the numbers were big, we were able to treat each person as a valued individual and, in most cases, find solutions that allowed for healing and hope. Our programs and services impact people when they are most vulnerable. What they find is a staff that is both professional and compassionate, addressing trauma with a very practical level of understanding and help. With God’s guidance, we will continue to be a light in a dark world.

Houston DEBBIE RIPPSTEIN, Executive Director Gracewood truly is a place of home, hope and healing for the children and single mothers who find comfort and restoration on our two campuses in Houston. The evidence of that is compelling. More than 60 children and almost 40 mothers stayed with us during 2013, but the numbers aren’t as important as the stories. Gracewood moms are eloquent in expressing what the ministry has meant to them. “It wasn’t until my daughters and I came to Gracewood that I realized God orchestrated everything that happened in order to bring me to this wonderful place so I could experience true healing and learn to trust,” said Tasha. “Gracewood changed our lives in so many ways,” added Valerie. “It gave me and my son hope. Gracewood taught us to have faith in the Lord and that through Him we have the strength to overcome anything at any time.” “I remember sitting in my car crying, so overwhelmed by God’s goodness and grace. Finally, my daughter and I had found a place to call home,” said Tonia. “Gracewood played a vital role in reshaping me to become a new woman and mother.” We are constantly hearing from mothers and children who say that Gracewood was a home and comfort to them during a desperate time in their lives. They tell us that their time at Gracewood reminded them to trust God in every situation and that with Him all things are possible. Gracewood gave them the strength to face a future with optimism and purpose.

Each year we welcome new families into their new, albeit temporary, homes. And each year we send them off equipped with better educations, better job skills and a better understanding of the role that God plays in their lives. Thank you for your support of each of the moms and children who are now able to achieve so much more than they once dreamed.


We send them off equipped with better educations, better job skills and a better understanding of the role that God plays in their lives.

GREGG APPEL, CHAIR - Brenham PEGGE BOGLE - Brenham MORDECAI BROWNLEE - Brenham DAN GATTIS, JR. - Georgetown RON LEPS - Weir JERRY RANSOM - College Station DIANE WILLIAMS - Houston

Brenham ALEX HAMILTON, Executive Director For many boys, that first ride up the long driveway to Miracle Farm can be daunting. They are entering a world that is foreign to them - a world where their days will be filled with chores, horses, school, discipline, devotionals and new friends. Understandably, many are nervous about it. There are no “typical” teenage boys who arrive at the Farm. They all come from different backgrounds and family situations, bringing with them a variety of attitudes and behaviors. They don’t really know what to expect when they are asked to live in a cottage with seven other boys they’ve never met. But the transformation that occurs truly reflects God’s hand at work in their lives. By the time they leave, boys who stick with the program return to their families as young men of integrity, with their boots firmly planted on the path to adulthood. Two of the boys who completed the program in 2013 are examples of what can happen when you combine hard work, a caring staff and God’s grace. Troy says when he first arrived he was “like a dog on a leash, fighting everything.” Rickey says, “I was a young man who needed direction. I was struggling to find out who I was and who I needed to be.” By the time they left, both young men knew exactly what Miracle Farm meant to them. “This was the turning point in my life,” said Troy, 18. “This place helped me get my wings. I’ll take with me an all-go, can-do attitude. I learned that here.”

Miracle Farm 10802 FM 2621 | Brenham, TX 77833 (979) 836-0901 | info@MiracleFarm.org www.MiracleFarm.org

“I learned things that not just a young man would do, but what a man would do,” said Rickey, 17. “Miracle Farm changed my life and helped me become a godly man.” As you read this today, there are teenage boys following in the footsteps of Troy and Rickey at Miracle Farm, learning that with prayer and God’s support, they will have the chance of a lifetime to grow into responsible young men.

Round Rock, Temple, Waco & Stephenville RICHARD SINGLETON, Executive Director One of the definitions of “trauma” describes it as an emotional wound caused by a deeply disturbing experience. While most of us are able to overcome difficult patches in our lives, there are some who experience such intense trauma that it requires a special type of care to help them heal. These people are among the almost 12,000 individuals who sought services from STARRY in 2013. In STARRY’s Emergency Shelter, Foster Care, Counseling and SAFE programs, we help people for whom trauma has become a life-crippling experience. These are children — some victimized by sexual, emotional or physical abuse — and families struggling with things as commonplace as communication failures. It can all be traumatic when you’re ill-equipped to deal with the emotional damage caused by trauma. STARRY’s job, at each of its ministries, is to turn stories of trauma into stories of success, to help children and families heal, and to replace harm with security, confidence and compassion. Ryan and Mandy Sheehan have seen trauma firsthand. Parents of three biological children, they are also STARRY foster parents. In the past three years, they’ve had nine foster children, ranging from 3 days old to 3 years old. Each child came from a place of trauma to a place of hope. “I love each of these foster kids just like I do my own children, even if we only have them for a short time,” said Mandy. “Regardless of how long it takes or what it entails, we’re here to love them just the same.” “There is a healing aspect to foster care,” added Ryan. “You see the need, as overwhelming as it may be, and you get to help fix it.”

STARRY 1301 North Mays | Round Rock, TX 78664 (512) 246-4288 | info@STARRYonline.org www.STARRYonline.org

STARRY sees the faces of trauma walk through its doors every day. Partnerships with amazing people like the Sheehans and our equally amazing STARRY staff make a difference in so many lives.

TEXAS BAPTIST CHILDREN’S HOME

STEVE ABALOS, CHAIR - Round Rock MIKE AMEND - Marietta, GA KEVIN KARSCHNIK - Round Rock DAVID SMITH - Austin PAM WESTERFIELD - Round Rock

Round Rock KEITH DYER, Executive Director For 64 years, children have been at the heart of everything we do at Texas Baptist Children’s Home. That was just as true in 2013 as it was in 1950. Children continue to be the biggest beneficiaries of the ministries you make possible, whether they are in the original Campus Life program, Family Care program or HOPE outreach ministry. Our vision is to make a lasting change in the children we serve and in generations to come. That makes me think of Daniell, a single mother, college student, abuse survivor and mentor who has been a part of our Family Care program. Despite all that she has been through, her future has never been brighter. It is a credit to what she has seen God accomplish in her life and the lives of her twin teenage daughters and her 4-year-old son. “I know that it’s not about me,” she says. “It’s about what Jesus has done for me. I’m a single mom, with three kids, going to college full time. If that’s not God alive and working, I don’t know what is.” And the next generation, represented by her children, is directly impacted by this remarkable woman’s commitment to God. “I want my kids to always know Jesus,” she says. “When they grow up, I don’t want them to remember a day that I didn’t talk about Jesus.”

Each of the children, mothers and families we served last year could tell you a story that would warm your heart. It is true evidence of the grace of God at work in the lives of those who come to us hurting and leave healed and hopeful. It is a credit to our staff that truly cares about their well-being, volunteers who work so tirelessly to improve the lives of people they barely know, a God who cares about every individual soul, and donors who provide the financial support needed to do positive work in His Kingdom.

We are blessed to see your generosity abounding as we interact with a growing number of faithful friends who sacrifice to support the Children At Heart Ministries’ mission.

TODD ROBERSON - President/CEO DAWSON CLARK - Vice President/COO 1301 North Mays | Round Rock, TX 78664 (512) 255-3668 | info@cahgift.org www.CAHFoundation.org

DAWSON CLARK, Vice President / COO

Along with that, we are grateful for our compassionate professional staff and volunteers, all of whom give so much to improve the lives of those who come to Gracewood, Miracle Farm, STARRY and Texas Baptist Children’s Home for help in times of crisis. May I share just a few examples of donors who touched many lives during 2013? There was the donor who made a sizable gift to help us acquire vehicles to provide those we serve with dependable transportation to school and work. A third grade class at a local elementary school raised $602.92 - a quarter, dime, nickel and penny at a time - by selling their own handmade gifts; a high school swim team raised more than $1,000 just by asking friends and family to support our ministries. A retired school teacher scrimped, sacrificed and saved her entire life, then left a large estate gift to provide for the care of kids. No one who knew her had any idea of her wealth.

TBCHFS BOARD OF TRUSTEES BOB AVERY, CHAIR - Temple RICHARD CROW - Round Rock DAVID HAYES - Georgetown

Each of these donors and thousands of others have a special place in the hearts of those we serve. We are equally grateful to the donor who faithfully sends us a crisp one dollar bill every month as we are to the donor who is able to make a five-figure gift. In Luke 21, Christ praised a poor widow who gave just a tiny amount as an offering - it was all she had. The lesson we share is that God is not interested in the amount as much as He is interested in the selflessness with which you give. At the Children At Heart Foundation, we are blessed to be able to see evidence of that selflessness every day of the year. Thanks for your partnership in ministry. The ministry is yours, too!


Under God’s leadership, we will break the generational cycle of child abuse and family crisis.

We appreciate your support.
