Our Next Event - Ladies Day!

Ladies' Day 2023 -- February 18!

Our annual Ladies' Day is held in February.  We begin around 10:00 a.m. with a lite fare breakfast followed by singing, a special speaker, games, lunch, and great fellowship.  Each year we like to have our staff and girls in care involved so that you may get to know us better.  Our day usually wraps up around 3:00 p.m.  All are invited to participate.  There is no cost for the day.  It is our goal that you will see our work, meet our staff and girls, and choose to be a part of our work by becoming a prayer warrior and an ambassador for the family at CHC.  RSVPs are appreciated so that we may be adequately prepared.

This year's (2023) speaker is Janet Marks, author of "Three Little Decisions".  Learn about her HERE and by going to her Facebook page HERE.

PLEASE RSVP BY FEBRUARY 14 by calling 325-622-4201, or emailing


Cherokee Day is our most important day of the year.  We set aside the first Saturday in May as a special Open House and Food Drive to fill our pantry and collect funds for needed grocery items.  It also serves as a wonderful day of fellowship for current and past donors, visitors, and returning staff and residents.

Congregations, businesses, and individuals bring donations in-kind and cash donations to provide the needed grocery items for the following 12 months.  While on campus we have a wonderful BBQ lunch together, a short program, and plenty of time for tours of our campus and chances to meet our children and staff.

Perhaps your congregation could designate a “Cherokee Day Sunday” and take a special collection and/or have members fill your church foyer with groceries.  If you would like for your congregation to focus on a few items to collect, please contact us for a list.

Please begin planning how you will impact His children and mark your calendars for SATURDAY, MAY 6, 2023!


MAN UP on October 14, 2023!

Every year in the Fall we have a special gathering for men, called Man Up!.  This event is designed to give husbands, fathers, and their sons an opportunity to have fun, bond with other men, and get some spiritual feeding and encouragement.  2019's event featured Brad McCoy (father of Washington Redskins quarterback and former NCAA championship Univ. of Texas quarterback, Colt McCoy) as the speaker.  He, and a panel of experienced fathers/husbands, led us in thoughts about what it means to "Take a Stand and Take the Lead" as Christian men in today's world.

Last year's (2021) event featured two very effective speakers and leaders:  John Shero, preacher for the Southgate Church of Christ in San Angelo, and John Cannon, former full-time preacher for the Walnut Church of Christ in Texarkana. They shared their experience and insight on what it means to "Man Up" to prepare to pass the baton to the next generation of male Christian leaders. Check out our website gallery (click HERE) for pictures of our 2021 event!

OUR 2022 EVENT featured Scott Knudsen, a 5th generation Christian cowboy, motivational speaker, emcee, film judge, professional cowboy, brand ambassador, and rancher. Check him out here.

Join us in 2023 and enjoy more!  A great BBQ lunch will be served and there will be a small silent auction of some quality "manly" items.  Throughout the day there will be displays and demonstrations of skills and hobbies, such as knife forging, golf swing coaching, Western jewelry making, handloading, firearms assembly, and more.  Some displays might include fun contests with prizes.  The event will begin at 10 a.m. and end around 4 p.m.

RSVP by October 2 to get a chance to win a great door prize (TBA next year)!  You must be present to win. RSVP by calling the number below, email, or online by going HERE.
