Christmas time is just around the corner on the COMP ACT ®  Campus. Christmas is a special, yet emotional time for our kids as well as our staff. Often times, it is the first time a child is away from his/her family or it is the first time Christmas will truly be celebrated. 

COMP ACT ®  Christmas is a large operation on the Hillcrest campus and meets the needs at Christmas time as well as the continuing needs of our kids throughout the year. It is something that we could not accomplish without the help of donors. 

Consider supporting COMP ACT ® Christmas in one of the following ways:
  • Support one child for Christmas and purchase an item off of this child's wishlist. Contact our offices to receive a wishlist for a child. 
  • Support a cottage this Christmas and help by purchasing some items for the cottage. Contact our offices to receive a wishlist for a cottage.
  • Support Christmas as a whole and send a donation to be used where most needed. You can do this by clicking the link below!
  • Support Christmas as a whole and send a gift card to be used where needed. These can be cards of any amount to any store (Walmart, Visa and Amazon are always great choices). Gift cards allow us to fulfill wish lists for our kids and shop specifically. Any leftover gift cards after all lists have been fulfilled are used throughout the year for birthdays and special occasions. Gift Cards are the gift that keeps on giving!

Donations can be mailed directly to us at the following address. If you choose to shop on  Amazon.com , you can also direct your gift to this address as well. Please include a note to where the gift is intended.

Highlands Reopening in Missouri!
Highlands Child Placement and Maternity Services is a ministry of hope and life for unexpectant pregnant mothers, babies, and adoptive couples. Since its beginning in 1966, the ministry has placed over 3,000 babies in adoptions. In 2006, Highlands relocated operations from its 13-acre headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, to the 52-acre Hillcrest Children’s Home campus in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

During its annual meeting in October, the  COMPACT Family Services  board of directors approved the reopening of  Highlands Adoption and Maternity Services  in its state of origin, Missouri. While Highlands Maternity Home on the Hillcrest Campus in Hot Springs will continue, its placement services will shift to Springfield, Missouri. Missouri Director Ashley Grant says that Highlands will begin to offer services for a larger demographic of Assemblies of God constituents.

“We are excited to move forward by helping connect adoptive couples with birth mothers nationwide,” says COMPACT Executive Director  Jay Mooney .
