MCH serves children and youth regardless of race, religion or financial status.
Our staff members work closely with families to develop and maintain a plan of service to help children achieve personal growth and success. Staff members build positive, life-changing relationships with youth by providing love, compassion and a supportive living and learning environment.
Families can learn about our programs and services by calling Methodist Children’s Home directly or through referrals from ministers, counselors, social workers or psychologists familiar with the family’s situation. Whether it is a family illness or conflict, school difficulties, behavior issues or financial challenges, Methodist Children’s Home is ready to help families in need.
If you are interested in applying for admission to our residential programs, please call one of the numbers below. When an inquiry is made, a staff member will conduct an initial screening to gather information about the child and determine eligibility for admission. If MCH determines we can meet the needs of the child, the family or guardian will receive additional information about completing the application forms.
If MCH is unable to assist a family with placement, efforts are made to refer the family to other sources of potential help.
