​When a child cannot live with his or her family of origin, and the child will not thrive in a foster or adoptive family, the Evans Home offers an alternative. We create an environment that is as "family-like" as possible. We are committed to providing nurturing, supportive substitute care. Our children grow into productive members of society with the help of the rich resources of our Home and our community. We are devoted to each child's welfare and to the mission that no child in need be ignored. We make certain that our children know they are loved and cared for, that they dream of a future, and that they fashion their dreams into goals.
