The United Methodist Children's Home was described to us by a representative of the Alabama Department of Human Resources as a "Shining Star' in the caring for children that it provides. Children and families can fit in to the continuum of care offered by UMCH and feel that they are growing stronger in their daily lives.

My Sunday School class and Church support the United Methodist Children's Home Babies First program. It is a wonderful program that keeps young mothers with their babies when they are unable to be supported by their families. It prevents many mothers from entering the welfare system.

UMC Children's Home has provided a Christian home for many abandoned children in our community. I especially enjoyed spending time with the local home during Christmas meals. Hearts are being blessed in ways that we will never see through the efforts of all the "parents" who live with these children and love them as their own.
May God richly bless all who support and volenteer for this program.

The smiles of the children warm even the coldest heart. Visits from children who have entered adulthood and are serving in their community is evidence of the success of the UMC Children's Homes.

I am a local church Advocate for the Alabama-West Florida United Methodist Children's Home. Every local United Methodist church has an Advocate who works in conjunction with the staff to assist in fundraising and other activities. I maintain frequent communication with the administrative staff. I arrange visits to the local group homes in the area for members of my church. I plan the details of the annual White Christmas offering so that my church can be an active participant in this event. I have met children who are served by the Children's Home in a group home setting and coordinated activities to help the children in that home. The staff always supports and encourages my role as Advocate, while maintaining continuous, positive communication with me.The staff awarded my rural, small church with a certificate for being one of the top ten local church contributors to the Children's Home during the annual White Christmas offering. I was so inspired by the mission of the Children's Home that I continued in my father's legacy of being the local church Advocate for my church.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Personally witnessing the excellent, nurturing care that residents of a group home receive by the staff members who work with them on a daily basis. Through personal contact with two staff members who drove a long distance to meet me and thank me for my efforts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to allow for an increase in staff so that more children could be served; while giving house parents and social workers the hands-on assistance they need in order not to be constantly overwhelmed with their responsibilities.
