GOODLAND PRESBYTERIAN CHILDRENS HOME
November 1, 2012

My involvement with Goodland began well over 20 years ago. Now, I warn people not to visit unless they want to fall in love. One of the most important elements that Goodland possesses is that all the boys who attend are placed with two parent families on campus. For many it is the first time they have had the influence of a classic nuclear family. They attend church together, have family celebrations, work on homework and housework, and get support, love, discipline, and a promising future. Goodland has been a haven for 100s and 100s of children. There are so many more good boys with, literally, nowhere to go. Originally, a mission, orphanage, and boarding school for Choctaw and Chickasaw at the end of the Trail of Tears, Goodland survives and thrives. The philosophy and practice are years beyond most children's homes and even beyond many residential education facilities with many more resources. I have never been anything but supremely proud of the efforts and RESULTS at this historical gem of a school and mission and family. We honor the past but with a clear vision for the future.
