Infancy to Independence

At Methodist Home for Children, we build on strengths, nurture goals, create opportunity, and prepare children and families to shape their own futures. But the needs of those in our care extend far beyond the basics. They require more than a quick fix. What started as an orphanage in 1899, has evolved and expanded to provide the best in evidence-based services for children and families throughout North Carolina regardless of religion, race, or socioeconomic status.

Removing kids from bad situations is just the start; we want to break self-destructive cycles and point children and families toward a positive future. We rely on private gifts and grants to support the many programs that prepare children in crisis to reach their full, God-given potential.

We work so that all in our care – children and families – have the hope and the skills they need to build healthy, self-sufficient, and productive lives.
