Cherokee Home for Children, located between San Saba and Llano broke ground for a new $1million plus children’s cottage as part of their “Stability First” program. Turning the first shovels of dirt on site are 37 year employee, Nettie Jean Randolph; Board President Bill Belich of Brownwood; two of the children from Cherokee Home, and Executive Director, Delton McGuire. Cherokee Home for Children has been caring for Central Texas children in need since 1958, and is currently home to 28 children. This new cottage is the first new cottage construction in 40 years. Cherokee Home cares for children ages 2-18 and is funded by gifts from Churches of Christ and individuals. Children in need can be placed by parents, guardians, or through state agencies.
