The Children’s Home makes a real difference in the lives of children. It has helped transform the lives of thousands of hurting children since 1890. Many of our alumni are now successful adults who are giving back to the communities which gave to them. The need continues as there are thousands of other children who require our help. Supporting The United Methodist Children’s Home, YOU can make a life changing difference.
Our Mission is to follow the example of Christ by embracing all God’s children … one child, one family at a time.
We are servants of Christ providing safe homes and caring support to vulnerable children from Alabama and Northwest Florida.
