About Methodist Children's Home
Although our name has changed through the years and our program of care has adapted to the needs of those we serve, Methodist Children’s Home remains true to our mission to offer hope to children, youth and families through a nurturing, Christian community. Founded in 1890, MCH is a nationally accredited, non-profit childcare ministry affiliated with the seven United Methodist Annual Conferences of Texas and New Mexico.
Throughout our history, we have been blessed with resources that have enabled us to provide the highest quality of care and facilities for children and youth. Today, MCH serves more than 1,400 children and youth daily through residential programs on the Waco campus, Boys Ranch and Waxahachie campus, and through foster care, transition services and a variety of services in communities throughout Texas and New Mexico.
In addition to learning about our ministry through this website, we encourage you to tour our residential campuses. Throughout your tour, you will see evidence of God’s blessings on this ministry through the vision and leadership of current and former administrators and benefactors who have enabled the Home to become one of the leading childcare agencies in the United States.
