Online Quilt Sale!

Did you know you can still contribute to the 2018 Festival of Quilts by purchasing a quilt now? They make great gifts and it’s also a great way to help our kids.

Cunningham Children's Home has a long history with quilts. Since 1895, every young person who has come to our agency has been given a hand-made quilt to enjoy and treasure forever.

The Ripple Effect

Jennifer Lane of Westville never imagined the ripple effect that would be created from what started out as a difficult conversation with her 10-year-old son, Carson. Because of some unfortunate circumstances in their life, Jennifer had to tell Carson that he would not be getting as much for Christmas this year.

Strategic Plan


During Cunningham’s 122 year history, our programs, and services have evolved to address our top priority-the needs of kids, especially those who are most vulnerable. That’s why our vision is straightforward. We want to see every child thrive. And our mission builds on that idea by stating that we want to nourish hope through effective solutions so children thrive and families flourish.
