More than 1,500 people attended Sunday's rededication of The Children's Home of Lubbock. Sunday marks the 50th anniversary since the first child was cared for at The Children's Home at 4404 Idalou Highway. Since that first child, the Children's Home has provided services to more than 4,800 children.
President of The Children's Home of Lubbock, Lynn Harms, says they have Lubbock to thank.
"One of the great things that makes The Children's Home of Lubbock so successful is that Lubbock, Texas is the ideal place to have a children's home. The outpouring of support, interest, help has come from Lubbock and the surrounding South Plains area. This home and its 50 year history is a testimony to greatness of Lubbock and the great South Plains," said Harms.
