Oak Partners were lucky enough to receive a list of the children’s wishes this year from the children of the Carmelite Home. This year the Angel Tree from the Carmelite home had 103 children on it. Every single one was accounted for because of the astounding generosity of the Oak Partners team and clients!
St. Joseph’s Carmelite Home, originally an orphanage, was opened in 1913. The poverty in East Chicago was extreme, but faithfulness to this most necessary mission for neglected/abused children has prevailed throughout the past ninety-five years.
Carmelite Home evolved from an orphanage to a group home and finally to a residential treatment center. Over the years, the Carmelite Sisters have cared for hundreds of children. They now provide a fully accredited on-campus school for those children who need one-on-one academic assistance and a more structured environment. Currently, over 100 children call The Carmelite Center “home.”
Crystal DeHaven from Oak Partners exclaimed, “Delivering the gifts yesterday was AMAZING. Thank you for sharing so much joy with these children. On behalf of our whole team here at Oak, THANK YOU and MERRY CHRISTMAS!”
