Methodist Children’s Home is committed to serving youth who experience various levels of hardship. While the majority of the children in our residential program are ages 12-18, exceptions can be made for younger siblings to keep sibling groups together.
MCH works directly with families dealing with the following challenges:
Family hardship – MCH can help improve difficult circumstances that a family might endure in the home resulting from parent-child conflict, behavioral or emotional issues, or a variety of other problems that can affect a child’s development.
School-related issues – MCH is ideal for youth in grades 6-12 who need specialized educational services coupled with a supportive residential community to help them succeed in school.
Homelessness – MCH serves older youth who are struggling to stay in school due to unstable living arrangements or homelessness. Youth ages 16-18 who do not live with their parents and manage their own financial affairs can consent to receive care at MCH at no cost.
