 Today the Methodist Home is a multi-faceted residential care home providing a continuum of specialized treatment programs that address the needs of abused, neglected and abandoned children. The Methodist Home’s mission seeks to respond to Christ and the Church as we restore lost childhoods, strengthen families and cultivate a people-building organization.

This month’s TEAM!
