The Oblong Children’s Christian Home is located in a peaceful rural setting in south eastern IL eight miles from Robinson IL and approximately 45 miles from both Terre Haute and Vincennes IN.  A local junior college provides cultural activities.


The Oblong Children’s Christian Home provides stable Christian family homes on a campus setting. Houseparents provide unconditional love and guidance.  The youth also participate in counseling and a therapeutic horsemanship program.  High School youth initially attend an on-campus computer based school but can progress to the public school. The youth and staff attend one of several local Christian Churches or Churches of Christ in the community.


The goal for most children is for them to return home when both the children and the parents are prepared for successful reunification.  If return home is not possible, the home assists the youths until they are prepared for independent living.  The ultimate goal is to prepare the young person for a life of Christian living and for eternity.


The home has excellent facilities and enjoys a sound financial base of church and individual support without accepting State and Federal money.
