Today … here in North Carolina … eleven thousand kids are in the foster care system, and we don’t have enough homes to go around. That means for every one child we take in at Methodist Home for Children, we turn away 18 others. Let’s fix this. Will you help? We need foster parents for older kids and sibling groups.Learn about foster parenting at our information sessions. Call 919-754-3647. 919-754-3647. Or check our website - www.mhfc.org.
Every child deserves a chance.
We work with children who’ve been neglected, abused, and traumatized • We work with adults who lack basic coping and parenting skills • We work with juvenile offenders who are unparented, failing in school, looking for acceptance in all the wrong places • We work with teens who are struggling with mental illness and substance abuse • We work with children who are diagnosed with severe emotional and developmental disorders • We work with preschoolers who are at risk already for falling behind in life.
We work so that all in our care – children and families – have the hope and the skills they need to build healthy, self-sufficient, and productive lives.
Here’s how we do it:
Nurturing Hope • Foster Care & Adoption
Strengthening Homes • Family Preservation
Priming to Learn • Early Childhood Education
Breaking the Cycle • Juvenile Justice
Building Abilities • Specialized Services
We believe that every child deserves a chance, regardless of the circumstances into which he or she was born. Sometimes children need new parents. Sometimes teens need to learn new behaviors. Sometimes adults need to learn coping and parenting techniques. Our goal is to create safe, stable homes where all can live to their full potential. Your support make this possible, and we are grateful.
