The leadership of Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) is pleased to announce the funds have been secured to complete two additional homes on the Waco campus.
“We are excited that the campaign has been well received by so many of our supporters, staff, Alumni and friends,” said Tim Brown, President/CEO. “The short amount of time it has taken to raise this $5.2 million is evidence that this plan for the 21st century home for our children is resonating with donors and our supporters. I am pleased to visit with the young ladies and staff living in the Daniels Home and hear how much they enjoy the new home.”
In addition to building the Daniels Home which was dedicated
in June of this year, the capital campaign involves the closure and demolition
of the West Home and Scharbauer-Thomas Home in order to build the two new homes
that will be named after the main contributors, the Mabee Home and Hilliard

The West Home was a gift from Mrs. J.M. West of Houston, in memory of her husband, Jim West. The Scharbauer-Thomas Home, was a gift from lifelong friends, Mrs. Phil Scharbauer of Midland, and Mrs. Alma Thomas of Austin and was given in memory of their husbands. These homes have blessed countless children, staff and supporters over the years and we are grateful for the generosity of these families.
“This is truly an exciting time at MCH,” Brown said. “Throughout the history of this organization there have been times when changes have been made for the betterment of the ministry and to ensure MCH was ready to meet the ever-changing needs of children, youth and families. We know God is blessing this ministry.”
