Stories of Hope


The Four Corners Home for Children at Navajo Ministries has provided a safe, stable place of hope and healing to more than 1,000 children since 1953. Below are just a few of those stories:

A young boy was placed here during a Christmas holiday break. His greatest gift? A warm shower that he had never experienced before. The other children in the home also got together and gave him some of their own Christmas gifts, modeling unselfish giving to this hurting, neglected boy.

A 3-year-old girl and her siblings were placed in one of our long-term homes. She has long, flowing hair and likes to twirl around while wearing a beautiful dress. She also has something no child should have: a scar on her forehead from when someone in her home threw her against a bookcase, fracturing her skull. Today, she is happy and protected, enjoying life and learning to trust adults.

One of our boys came here when he was young. He spent all his elementary years in our former On-Site School. Now, in Middle School, he is on the honor roll! He is such a bright young man.

A teen girl who has lived here for more than a year now carries a 4.2 grade-point average in high school. Rather than wondering daily about her well-being in an abusive home, she is now focused on her future. She wants to be a writer.

Many people who grew up at the Four Corners Home for Children credit the program for “saving their lives.” Today, as adults, hundreds are now productive members of society. They are educators, health care workers, social workers, employed in the ministry field, and much more.

Many children placed at the Four Corners Home for Children have never heard the saving Gospel message of Christ’s wonderful love. Christ is modeled in all we do at Navajo Ministries. These children see what their life can become when they trust in Jesus.
