Boys Home of Virginia
Located in Covington, VA, Boys' Home is an important outreach of the Episcopal Church. Boys' Home has been providing care since 1906 for young men who either have no suitable home or who have difficulties that might best be solved away from their immediate home. The Mission of Boys' Home is to help each young man in residence strive towards becoming a productive member of society by developing his spiritual, mental, physical, and social potentials.
Manakin has been a part of the ministry of Boys' Home for many years, helping with the annual fund, providing items from the wish list, collecting soup labels for the Penny Power and contributing to the 2nd Century Fund to commemorate their 100 years of service. This year the Outreach Program at Manakin will support one of the eight cottages as part of a Special Christmas Giving Program. Also, Outreach dedicated two bicycles, obtained from the fall Yard Sale, to the Boys’ Home. The bicycles were in great shape and will provide much happiness to the boys.
More importantly, we share in the exciting challenges and incredible rewards of helping shape the lives of the wonderful young men of Boys' Home. Perhaps the greatest reward received is the innate awareness of true family - of the knowledge that this is what God asks of us... that we care for and love these chidren as ourself.
There are numerous ways to render support for the Boys’ Home, and their coordinator will provide guidance to you if you wish to give. For additional information, questions or suggestions, please visit the Boys' Home web site or call the church office at 804-794-6401.
