Here are some of our most prominent events throughout the 2017 year. In every season, there's always something going on that you'll want to know about! 

Annual Offering

(Year round!)

Many churches around the state participate and support the Children's Homes through the ABCH Annual Offering. The 2017 goal for helping children and families in need is $2.6 million, and we would love your support in meeting that goal! Read on for more details and to request church resources.

Orphan Sunday

November 12

Help your church become more aware of how they can care for hurting children by participating in Orphan Sunday on November 12! Learn more about how to get involved.


November 28

What Black Friday or Cyber Monday is to retailers, #GivingTuesday is to non-profits. On November 28, people from around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give to causes they believe in.
