Smoky Mountain Children’s Home
Cottage sponsorship is more than just donating money for a worthy cause…it’s a chance to literally change the lives of disadvantaged children in meaningful and practical ways, every single day! Your sponsorship helps provide a warm, loving and cheerful environment for displaced children by maintaining their homes with needed repairs such as freshly painted walls, replacing worn out or broken furniture, purchasing appliances, providing meals on special occasions, and so much more. Many sponsors send work groups to help with the actual repairs and upkeep, while at the same time getting to meet and interact with some of the children whose lives they are positively impacting.
It’s a wonderful and rewarding opportunity to fulfill God’s command to “…look after widows and children in their distress…” James 1:27. There are 11 cottages at the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home, each of which can house up to 8 children.
Women’s Discipleship has been a sponsor for the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home for years. We continue to provide financial assistance and keep them in our prayers. South Georgia Women’s Discipleship sponsors Cottage 7, South Georgia Plantation Cottage. The greatest need is assistance with monthly operating expenses which is approximately $22,223.00.
