Life Gets Better When Kids Feel At Home
The Grand Bahama Children's Home (GBCH) is a safe haven for abandoned, abused and neglected children in the Northern Bahamas (Grand Bahama, Abaco and Bimini). We're committed to giving the best care we can so that each child can heal and thrive.
Programs we've started
This program makes it possible to be part of our children’s journey. Become a sponsor for a day, week, month or year and you can help us provide care for our most vulnerable.
Building Our Village
We live by the principle that it takes a village to raise a child. With the right tribe in place to handle the little things, support goes a long way. Discover our growing community and commit to our village.
Dream Education Fund
Our Dream fund ensures that our children succeed during every moment of their primary school education. Despite a tough history, we believe all children should be allowed to dream.
We believe that every child deserves to feel safe, to be loved, to learn, to dream, to laugh and to have a hope for a better tomorrow. And, we pledge to keep striving until each child is thriving!
