Memorial Service for Travis Wirt

We would like to thank each and everyone of you for your thoughts and prayers for Travis' family and our staff during this difficult time. It is so refreshing to see how loved Travis truly was. He was a great asset and blessing to our ministry and will be deeply missed. For those of you who would like to further express your sympathy and are able to join us, we will be having a memorial service on our Campus at the Chapel on Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 
6:00 pm with a reception in our Dining Hall immediately following. Come join us in this celebration of a truly remarkable life.


Since 1919 the Presbyterian Children’s Home of the Highlands has provided love, sanctuary, guidance and support to children that have been removed from their homes and families.  Over the past 97 years thousands of children have passed through our doors.  In our early days many of our children were orphans, whose parents were victims of wars and disease.  As we moved into the 21st century, many of our children are victims of various forms of abuse and neglect.  There have been many changes in our history, but the commitment to providing our children the best possible care remains a constant force in our ministry.


Our staff is committed to working with the children’s families and other significant people in their lives to facilitate a return to their home.  When this is not a possibility, the children may stay with us as alternative plans are developed or until their graduation.  While in our care they live in an atmosphere of love and concern that enables the child to grow and mature physically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally and socially.
