About us

For more than 150 years, American Baptist Home Mission Societies has answered God’s call to meet the needs of those living on the margins. The ministries we support across the United States and Puerto Rico transform and heal communities dealing with poverty, disaster and crisis. Our network of volunteers, donors, churches and Christian leaders bring hope to children and families struggling with addiction, incarceration, mental illness and societal injustice. We continue to develop programs, publications and resources that encourage, educate, develop and strengthen Christian leaders to make an impact in people’s lives.
