Q: What is Marland Children's Home?
A: Marland Children's Home serves 44 youth (boys/girls) between the ages of 11 to 18. Our children come from all across Oklahoma, the majority from the Tulsa and Oklahoma City area. Our children have a wide variety of backgrounds, however all of them have been physically or sexually abused, deprived, or neglected. They are truly among the most destitute as they simply have no place else to go and no one else to rely upon. By the time they come to the Marland Children's Home, many of them have been in dozens of foster homes and several are from failed adoptions. Unfortunately, because our boys and girls range from 11-18, they are much less likely to be adopted.
We endeavor to not only give them a place to live but a home and a family. We strive to give them as many opportunities as possible to have a childhood. One of our greatest objectives is to prepare our children for adulthood. They will not likely have a support system of a traditional family, which most of us take for granted.We simply could not achieve the mission of the Marland Children's Home without the generosity of caring individuals, who believe that all children deserve a loving and caring home.
