Methodist Children’s Home

The mission of Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) is to equip children, youth and families to flourish by offering hope through Christ-centered relationships, services and support. As an evidence-based, trauma-informed and mission-centric organization, MCH focuses on the holistic growth of each individual through spiritual, physical and educational opportunities.
Founded in Waco in 1890, MCH serves youth through residential programs on the Waco campus and Boys Ranch in Axtell. In 13 locations across Texas and New Mexico, MCH Family Outreach offices serve individuals and families through community-based programs and services. The MCH Family Outreach Center at 524 W. Waco Dr. provides parent education, case management services, service planning, and advocacy for families. A new initiative launched in July 2022 offers free professional counseling services to the Waco community. Residents and day students from the Waco community attend an accredited charter school on the 130-acre Waco campus. The 500-acre Boys Ranch includes homes, a recreation and activities center, a variety of livestock pens, barns, and a horse arena. Girls and boys from both campuses participate in Ranch programs, such as Future Farmers of America (FFA), and the Outdoor Education program, which also offers free training and activities to the community.
Graduates from high school under the care of MCH, including youth served through outreach services, are eligible to apply for scholarship assistance to attend a community college, university or technical school. MCH provides transitional support services for former MCH youth ages 17-26 as they adjust to independent living and pursue advanced education, job training or employment.
MCH fulfills its mission through collaborations with like-minded organizations and the support of generous benefactors, not through church apportionment or government funding.
