Our Mission

Our Mission is to follow the example of Christ by embracing all God’s children … one child, one family at a time.

The United Methodist 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. By supporting the United Methodist Children’s Home, YOU can make a life changing difference.

We Believe

Every child deserves a loving home, and a chance to thrive. At the United Methodist Children’s Home, we are servants of Christ providing safe homes, caring support and life skills to vulnerable children from Alabama and Northwest Florida.

Providing Homes

Provide a safe and secure home environment for children and youth unable to live with their families.

Promoting Healing

Each child follows an individualized plan of care developed by our qualified caregivers. The goals of the plan are to increase self-reliance, emotional stability, spiritual growth, and interpersonal competence.

Offering Hope

All of our programs provide spiritual care as an important part of our ministry. One way we do this is by connecting our children with local churches in their area so they may participate in worship services, Sunday school, and children and youth activities.
