Our History

The Story of Our Home

It has taken many years of hard work, prayer,
and the generosity of many people to get to where we are today.
History of Our Home Christian Ministries

Our Home Christian Ministries first opened its doors on September 1, 1999 when, with the help of many volunteers and generous donations, our first residents moved into our first home, Parkside, in Oostburg, Wisconsin. We added an apartment at the back of the house for our resident managers, and four residents moved in that fall. Seventeen years later, Our Home Christian Ministries has four homes: Parkside, Northside, Eastside, and Creekside, all in Oostburg, and all the result of God’s countless blessings on our work.

By 2003 it became apparent that we could serve additional families if we opened a second residence. Our move to Creekside was a gradual one, first one apartment, then two, and finally the whole 4-plex. We now have residents in three of the apartments, and a Resident Manager occupies the fourth unit.

In 2005 we had the opportunity to purchase Northside, allowing four more residents to join the Our Home group. The main floor was an ideal set-up for four new residents, and we renovated the basement for a resident manager apartment.

Finally, in 2012 we acquired Eastside, a home for two residents, possibly three in time.

Looking back, we are immensely grateful to the families of our residents, the Oostburg community, the dedicated staff, the countless supporters and volunteers, and to the guiding hand of the God whom we serve.

Begin Supportive Home Care

In 2006 we began offering Supportive Home Care to people with developmental disabilities. It gives people the assistance they need while letting them stay in their own home.

2005

Our Home Northside

In June of 2005 we opened our second adult family home in Oostburg, Northside. This further enabled our vision of providing a safe family style home to adults with developmental disabilities.

Our Home Creekside

In April of 2003 we added Our Home Apartments. The addition of apartment style living with an on-site caregiver enables adults with developmental disabilities more independent living.

1999

Our First Home

In September of 1999 our vision for a Christian adult family home became a reality. A beautiful little home in Oostburg, WI was donated. We renovated the home to function as a state-licensed adult family home for up to four residents and a house-parent family.

The Vision Begins
