At The United Methodist Children’s Home, we envision a world where every child is raised in a loving, compassionate, and nurturing home. With your generous support in 2015, we came so much closer to achieving that goal. Whether you are a volunteer, donor, foster parent, or simply helped spread the word of our work, we are grateful!
In December 2013, Candice Thomas felt anything but hopeful. She had moved to Georgia for a job, but the position was eliminated before her first day. She relied on limited support from family, but then college student loans kicked in, and she soon found herself staying at a homeless shelter with her four-year-old daughter, Cadence.
“I was in survival mode,” said Candice. “It gets one through a tough time. I told my daughter that we were going on an adventure; we would be staying at dorms for a little while until I found a place for us to live. My daughter pretended it was a sleepover. Not until we moved into The Children’s Home did I cry.”
