You did it! You helped us raise the $887,000 needed to build a daycare and counseling center at Cookson Hills!

This summer, we will begin site prep work to level the land and relocate utilities. The construction of the building should begin in late summer. Our goal is to open the center at the start of the 2023-2024 school year!

Thank you for helping us continue to operate with a ‘no debt’ policy. We believe it is important to have your full support before starting any capital improvements, and you have given us just that. We can operate this way only because of the Lord and your incredible generosity. Thank you.

Permanent daycare facility— Living in a rural area makes it difficult for families with young children to come and serve at Cookson Hills. About six years ago we began offering an on-site daycare wherever space was available. For the past two years, we have been using an empty childcare home. But now, we need that home for its original purpose.

Counseling center on the Hilltop — For years, we offered counseling by the barns, but this required a staff member to spend four days a week transporting kids to and from appointments! For two years, we have used utility rooms in our library. However, these rooms do not provide the privacy our kids need as they share their traumas and hurts with their counselor.

The Ben & Sue Killion Counseling Center will provide 3-HIPPA certified counseling rooms to give our kids privacy while sharing their life’s hurts.

Architectural rendering of the counseling center and daycare! All gifts for this project will be matched up to $175,000! 


Our Board of Directors and Leadership team have determined that the best solution is to build an addition to the backside of our school (see the highlighted area of the image above).

The total cost of this project is estimated to be $887,187.
