Methodist Children’s Home

Offering Hope Since 1890

Founded in Waco 126 years ago, Methodist Children’s Home has grown from an orphanage into a nationally accredited childcare agency with the mission of offering hope to children, youth and families through a nurturing, Christian community. Nestled on 130 acres next to Cameron Park, youth enjoy a safe, caring residential setting specifically created to meet their needs. In addition to the campus on Herring Avenue, the MCH Boys Ranch is located just outside of Waco and serves those who may benefit from a ranch-style environment. While the majority of children who live at Methodist Children’s Home are ages 12-18, exceptions may be made for younger children to keep sibling groups together. Methodist Children’s Home is deeply rooted in Waco, but the impact of this organization is felt far beyond Central Texas. MCH Family Outreach offices are present in 13 communities across Texas and New Mexico and offer services to strengthen and unify families. These services may include foster care, in-home case management, parenting education and support for grandparents raising grandchildren. Methodist Children’s Home is blessed to continue its legacy thanks to the faithful support from the Waco community.
