About Us


Our Vision

Our vision for the future is to eventually build a cluster of five or six homes on our twenty acre site with each housing six children and their full time houseparents.


Building Update June 2019

The walls are up on our second home and we are beyond excited! However, we are currently confronting our biggest challenge which is  finding qualified house parents to take on this mission of being a Dad and a Mom for a maximum of six foster children.  As a result, we have held up completion of our second home until such time as we find house parents capable and desirous of nurturing these children.  If you are aware of any Christian couples who may be interested in becoming house parents, please call our executive director Jody Davis at 352-489-2565 or email him at jody@covenantchildrenshome.org
