Therapeutic Foster Care

What does a foster family mean to you?

“It’s about my entire life, it’s not just about my childhood. I want to know that I am going to have a dad or brother as my best man in my wedding. That my children will have grandparents.” – Jonathan, 15

Therapeutic Foster Home

Our Foster Care program is made up of servant hearted individuals and families who are willing to provide a stable and loving home for children from birth to 21 years old. The Foster Care staff provides training, support, and resources to each family through out the fostering process.

A Therapeutic Foster Home is a licensed and certified home to care for children with physical, emotional or behavioral difficulties. Therapeutic Foster Care is an intensive mental health service provided to a child in a family setting utilizing specially trained foster parents.

MCH is always looking for servant hearted foster parents who will provide stable and loving homes for our children. You can make a difference in the lives of children by opening your heart and home to them! Any home can be a Methodist Children’s Home!

A Happy Birthday

When Lashawn came to Methodist Children’s Homes five months ago, his plan was to run away on his 18th birthday. This past Friday, Lashawn turned 18 and said, “Now that I’m here I don’t want to leave. This place feels home. I have aunties and a granddad and mommas. It’s like a family here”.
