Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide redemptive, healing services that bring meaningful change to the lives of children and families. Grounded by scripture and the tradition of the church, we seek to bring the wholeness of God’s love to persons through Christ.


Remember the joy you felt when you discovered a dandelion as a child? You closed your eyes and made a wish, and when you blew, your breath carried the seeds of the dandelion into the world.

When you think about it, that’s what we’re doing at the United Methodist Children’s Home every day. We’re picking people up, oftentimes when they’re at the lowest point in their lives, and we’re speaking truth into them. We show them love, and we help them find new ways of thinking and living, that they then carry into their families, friends and the world. Spreading hope -- that’s what we do.

The Children’s Home has a legacy of helping children, and we have a present and a future of helping children, youth and families. Those who come to us come with different needs, different pasts and different strengths. We have 11 different programs that meet these children, youth and adults where they are -- offering a holistic, therapeutic program that can change their lives forever.

All of our services are aimed at preventing the breakup of families, restoring and healing separated families, or teaching children, teens and young adults how to create successful and meaningful lives for their own future families. We want all of our youth and families to know they have the power to overcome their past and reach a brighter future.

If you'd like to serve in a place that really allows you to make a difference, come and serve at UMCH! Jesse's House, the summer day camp, provides opportunity for each child in camp to have one-on-one reading time with an adult volunteer each day. UMCH has a 143-year legacy of serving children and families well. When you spend your time at UMCH, you know you're investing in a child's future. In my opinion, that's time well spent!
