Welcome to Navajo Ministries
Navajo Ministries was founded in 1953 with a single children’s home to care for disadvantaged Navajo children. Today, Navajo Ministries operates four programs on our beautiful 16-acre campus in Farmington, New Mexico. Those programs include the Four Corners Home for Children, the Navajo Ministries School, KNMI Vertical Radio (FM 88.9) and Navajo Nation Outreach.

SPECIAL ALERT: Big Changes at Navajo Ministries
Dear Friends of Navajo Ministries,
We are sharing some difficult news today about some necessary changes at Navajo Ministries and the Four Corners Home for Children. Due to continued financial shortfalls, beginning in early June we will close one of our three children’s homes – the House of Hope, which has cared for emergency-placement children from situations of abuse and neglect. This will be a long-term closure in order to protect the future of the Four Corners Home for Children. As you may recall, this home was temporarily closed in the fall until finances improved. We will continue to operate two long-term homes (the House of Faith and House of Love), which will provide needed care for up to 20 children ranging in age from babies to teens. In addition, Navajo Ministries will be reducing staff wages by varied levels and also cutting other budget services for a total of about $10,000 per month (more than 10 percent of the annual budget). These changes must be made due to decreased contributions, in large part the result of a dire local economy based on the energy industry that has seen 6,000 people lose their jobs in recent years. Many corporations and individuals are now giving much less, or nothing at all. God has always provided for Navajo Ministries, ever since we were founded in 1953 at 2103 W. Main St. in Farmington, New Mexico. We are especially leaning on Him today for His provision. Romans 8:28 says: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” At Navajo Ministries our mission is to help the people we serve through programs that instill hope, restoration and Christian values. We thank you for your partnership in this calling. We now ask for your continued prayers for us. If you can help with a special financial gift, or other commitment, please donate here, or you can send in a gift to Navajo Ministries, PO Box 1230, Farmington, NM, 87499. Navajo Ministries receives no state, federal or tribal funds to operate our four programs, which include the Four Corners Home for Children, Navajo Ministries School, KNMI Vertical Radio and Navajo Nation Outreach. People like you make the difference to so many through your gifts!
