Office Manager

Christina is the pleasant voice you hear when you call us.

She wears many hats from taking donations by phone or keeping track of the RSVP s for our fundraising events. (Just to name a few of the many roles)

Jamie & Crystal Crawford

Houseparents

Jamie and Crystal are the heart and soul of the girls' home with 8 children.  Christian values drive their efforts to model a loving family. They create a safe, consistent, and therapeutic environment to help our children to thrive today and in the future, as adults. 

 

They support the vital aspects of a child's spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual, and physical needs to help them achieve their goals.

Joe & Anne Rackley

Founders

Joe and Anne had a vision forty years ago to create a haven for children in need. A place children in our loving community could call home and feel their needs were being met. A place where children could flourish and become their best selves.

Joe and Anne are now enjoying their retirement years. They still offer support where needed. Ultimately, they know they have passed the torch to a great group of people that will continue to carry their dream forward well into the future.

Collins Home is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that provides a residential home for children between the ages of birth – 21 who have been abused, abandoned, neglected or are otherwise unable to live with their families.
