Happy New Year from Methodist Children’s Home! This year marks a special time for our ministry as we celebrate 125 years of offering hope to children, youth and families. Founded in 1890 as the Northwest Texas Conference Orphans Home, our ministry continues to thrive by adapting to the continually changing needs of society in order to give thousands of children a chance at a better life.
Our ministry has been led by 10 presidents who have provided us with strong leadership and guidance throughout the years. The name of the ministry has changed four times, starting as the Northwest Texas Orphans Home in 1890, followed by Methodist Orphanage in 1898, Methodist Home in 1942 and finally, Methodist Children’s Home in 1996. Our services have undergone transitions as we have grown from an orphanage to a multi-service childcare agency.
With 125 years of service, Methodist Children’s Home has been blessed with longevity and continues to explore ways to give our families a brighter future. Throughout 2015 to honor our 125th anniversary, we will share stories and host events to commemorate the past, celebrate the present and create the future of Methodist Children’s Home. MCH has a special weekend planned Oct. 9-11, 2015 where we will host special guests, recreate events of the past, and share exhibitions and tours of our historic campuses.
