About Methodist Children’s Home
Although our name has changed through the years and our program of care has adapted to the needs of those we serve, Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) remains true to our mission to equip children, youth and families to flourish by offering hope through Christ-centered relationships, services and support. Founded in 1890, MCH is a nationally accredited, nonprofit childcare ministry that relies on the generosity and support of individuals and churches which empowers all we serve to experience life to the fullest.
Throughout our history, we have been blessed with resources that have enabled us to provide the highest quality of care and facilities for children and youth. Today, MCH serves children and youth through residential programs on the Waco campus and Boys Ranch, and through foster care, transition services and a variety of services in communities throughout Texas and New Mexico.
In addition to learning about our ministry through this website, we encourage you to tour our residential campuses. Throughout your tour, you will see evidence of God’s blessings on this ministry through the vision and leadership of current and former administrators and benefactors who have enabled MCH to become one of the leading childcare agencies in the United States.
