Founders thought that Valentine’s Day, which is a day set aside to celebrate love, would be the perfect time to launch their vision of providing love and a safe, warm home to children without a place to live.
Christian City has come a long way since then, having cared for hundreds of kids over the years, and thousands of seniors as well.
On Valentine’s Day, they will celebrate that they have been “loving people… loving people” for 47 years now.
