Residential Care

Children in our Residential Care program live in a home-like cottage setting that accommodates up to eight children. Each cottage has married Christian couples who serve as houseparents, caring for the children on a twenty-four hour basis. Life at NMBCH is not unlike life in a typical family. 


Houseparents are trained and committed to helping each child grow physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially. This guidance and growth enables the child to meet personal goals and ultimately make significant lifestyle changes. 


Children attend Portales Public Schools and participate in athletics as well as other extracurricular activities through the schools. They are also involved in our 4H Club.
