What We Do

what we doAt Methodist Home for Children, we serve some of the most vulnerable people in our state–children who’ve been through revolving short-term foster placements, who were born addicted to drugs, who’ve suffered physical and psychological abuse. We serve teenagers who are lost to themselves because of mental illness, substance abuse and other destructive behaviors. We serve families on the verge of dissolving and losing everything precious in life.

Through residential and community-based services, we work to create safe, loving homes for children and to stop the causes of abuse and neglect:

  • foster care and therapeutic foster care
  • foster to adopt and private adoption
  • multipurpose and transitional living homes
  • short-term residential assessments of youth in the juvenile justice system
  • in-home services with family preservation and counseling
  • vocational education and scholarships
  • outpatient mental health services
  • day treatment and residential services for dually diagnosed children and teens
  • early childhood services
  • consultation and training
