Taunton Family Children’s Home

We proudly support the Taunton Family Children’s Home in Wewahitchka, Florida.  Founder David Taunton’s motto is “changing a child from the inside out.”  And that is exactly what they strive to do!  Each child that comes to live at the home is welcomed with the love of Christ.  More than 300 children have called Taunton’s home since they took in their first child in 1978.
