Who is Dr. Hugh Francis, Jr.?

Dr. Hugh Francis, Jr. was a faithful friend and servant to Palmer Home for Children since 1968. His personal commitment to the scriptural mandate to care for children led him to Palmer Home and our mission to provide care for every child who needs hope.

Connection and Community

Opened in 2022, the Wellness Center serves as the heart of our campus care program, housing educational, clinical, and social programs designed to provide the children at Palmer Home with the most opportunities to thrive.

Caring for the Whole Child

Children with a history of trauma have unique physical, emotional, social, educational, and spiritual needs. Our Wellness Center seeks to provide a space to address these needs so true healing can begin.

Palmer Home Programs

In addition to our Campus Care program, Palmer Home also offers three additional programs designed to meet the needs of children and families at every unique stage.
