Mission:
Our mission is to provide redemptive, healing services that bring meaningful change to the lives of children and families. Grounded by scripture and the tradition of the church, we seek to bring the wholeness of God's love to persons through Christ.
Results:
The Children’s Home is a safe haven for children, youth and their families, and we have been since 1871.

We provide a loving and safe home for abused and neglected children in the state foster care system through Foster Care and Adoption for children of all ages, Independent and Transitional Living for older youth, Nurturing Connections Second Chance Program for parenting teens and their babies, and Higher Education assistance.

We also work to prevent abuse and strengthen families. We believe that the best way to provide a safe and loving home for a child is to help create that in his or her own family. So our family preservation services – Family Counseling, Parenting Classes, Financial Aid and residential Family Housing – help families stay together and become stronger. Our summer and after-school program, Jesse’s House, also provides a safe place for children.

Our goal for everyone we serve is to find their “Forever Family” – what we call permanency. Whether that is through adoption, reunification, staying together or standing on their own, we help our children, teens and families find their home.

I had the honor to create a new brand logo for the United Methodist Children's Home of the North Georgia Conference in 2011, and that process taught me a lot about this great nonprofit. Their simple mission—to bring healing, God's love, and the warmth of a "forever family" to kids and families in ... more »
