Broad Street Children's Foundation supports self-sustaining children's homes across the United States that actively foster the development of strong, well-rounded children in their care.
Since the start of the Foundation, over $1,000,000.00 in grants have been donated to children's homes across the country. Additionally, through the Bill and Jackie Hazelgrove Scholarship Program, we have been able to assist a number of young people to continue their education and work towards a college or vocational degree.
Today, the Broad Street Children's Foundation is continuing the dream of it's original founders through the second generation. Equally as dedicated to changing the lives of children in need across America and striving to break the cycle of abuse and neglect for other children and their families.

The vision from the beginning was to have a campus that would allow the Joy House to serve 40 to 50 teens and families. In 2005 the Lord provided the debt-free purchase of nearly 30 acres for a campus nestled in the foothills of the mountains in Jasper, Georgia. In 2006 the existing home on the property was renovated, boy’s houseparents were hired, and in 2006 the boy’s home opened on the purchased campus.
