Our ‘Christ-centered’ approach
Cal Farley’s Christ-centered atmosphere is a cornerstone of our program philosophy and values. Those we serve come from many different faith backgrounds. Some have no exposure to faith in God at all. By presenting the gospel in its full integrity, with a spirit of loving patience, the hurting children at Cal Farley’s have room to ask their often frank, tough questions. We welcome these questions and their unique perspectives. At Cal Farley’s, we know that by following Christ’s example of humility, service and unconditional love, we create the conditions to allow true emotional and spiritual healing to begin.
