We keep growing at UMCH!

We’re excited that the garden project we told you about a couple of years ago is finally coming to fruition! Thanks to a partnership with Global Growers Network and the Oakhurst Community Garden Project, we will soon break ground on the garden. Look for more info to follow this spring, but for now, you can read a bit more about the project by clicking here.

Help us win $25,000 to build a new playground!

Vote for UMCH in the Aprons in Action contest on Facebook put on by The Home Depot Foundation, and we could win $25,000 in The Home Depot gift cards to build a new playground for our youngest children on campus. Not only that, if we win the initial $25,000, then next month we will compete for the grand prize of $250,000 with all the other monthly winners from the past year!


We have a large number of young children on our campus right now, but our playground and recreation equipment is intended for older children. With the $25,000, we can build two additional play areas for our younger children, and The Home Depot will even send volunteers to help us do the work!


We need your help to win the prize! Click here  and vote for the United Methodist Children’s Home to win. (It’s easiest if you’re already logged into Facebook before clicking the link to vote.) You can vote once every 24 hours until February 23, so please return every day to vote so we can build a playground for our children! And please spread the word on Facebook and any other social media you’re a part of, so that others will vote for us as well.


Thank you for helping us improve the Children’s Home for the children and families who live here!


When voting, please click “allow” to allow The Home Depot Foundation to access your basic information, which enables The Home Depot to monitor the contest and ensure that each voter only votes once per day.  The Home Depot takes their contest and your privacy seriously, and they will not access your private information.

It’s not too late to help Isaiah in 2011

How does a seven-year-old go from feeling scared and anxious, worrying about his mom and the abuse she is taking from his step-father, to feeling peaceful and safe?


How does he go in a few short months from making B’s and C’s and getting notes sent home from school, to making straight A’s?


How does he go from living in a shelter with his mom and sister, to feeling famous?

Pray with us during Advent

One of the best ways you can be a part of the ministry of the United Methodist Children’s Home is to pray with us. We’ve put together a calendar you can use throughout Advent to know how to specifically pray for our children and families.
