Our mission is to heal children, unite families, and change lives.
The United Methodist Children’s Home was established in 1871 to care for children orphaned during the Civil War and has evolved to help children and families as their needs grow and change.
We now place children into safe and loving foster care homes while helping to restore family relationships; prepare young adults who are still in Georgia’s foster care system to make positive life decisions and become productive citizens; and strengthen and preserve families, including by providing housing and support to families at risk of homelessness.
We work 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.
Our goal is always to help children and families find a place they can call “home.” This typically comes through reunification, adoption or developing the life skills to stand on their own.
