Christmas magic at The Children’s Home

On Saturday, Dec. 12, The United Methodist Children’s Home hosted our annual Christmas event to celebrate the holidays with the families and children we serve. More than 400 volunteers, foster families, family housing residents, and staff joined together to celebrate Christmas at The Children’s Home.  Your generous support helped make this event magical for everyone.

An Extended Family

When sisters Aubry and Riley Kate were placed into Daryl and Rachel Allison’s home, they had seen so much change in their short lives that they weren’t sure to whom they actually belonged. For months two-year-old Riley Kate would see any adult and say “Mommy? Daddy?” Their foster story was a complex one involving three other siblings in care and an unclear future — some might go back to their birth mother, to a group home for medically-fragile children, or be adopted.



Restoring Hope

Restoring Hope: “Helping those who are no different than me – it’s a way of life, it’s who I am. My life’s circumstances have placed me in a position where I understand the odds stacked against these kids and what they have to contend with to succeed in this world. I don’t consider this work.” – Terence Johnson, Children’s Home vice president of programming



Strength, will power, and a whole lot of vision

We are so proud of Raekwon Williams, 20, who participates in Children’s Home programming to help prepare foster youth for success. A sophomore at Clark Atlanta University, he is studying to become a case worker and one day hopes to open a group home to help foster youth.

“There are people in my life who said the things I needed to hear to get me to the place I am today. I want to be one of those people for someone else,” said Raekwon.

Clark Atlanta University features his story in their magazine this month (see page 25):
