Creating more compassionate communities where all families feel loved, accepted, welcome, and safe.

Barren Heights Retreat and Community Center

Did you know that there are over 54 million people affected by disability in the United States?

Here at Barren Heights our goal is to love and encourage these families. We do this primarily by providing free weekend retreats and hosting community outreach events for families who have children with physical or developmental disabilities.

We seek to provide special needs families the loving and encouraging community they need to conquer the overwhelming struggles of daily life with a disability.
We offer families a unique opportunity to answer Jesus’ call to “care for the least of these” by serving together and investing in those who often feel defeated and alone.
The Community Center plays a vital role in helping fulfill our mission as it provides a safe gathering place for our men’s, women’s, couples, siblings, and family communities.
Behind every number is a smile, a story, a life changed. Help us create more compassionate communities. Every bit makes an impact in the lives of special needs families.
