Our Story

At Methodist Home for Children, we provide safe, stable homes where children can thrive and live to their full, God-given potential. While not always traditional, an MHC home is where child and family are equipped to succeed. We build on strengths, nurturing hopes and goals, and prepare all in our care to shape their own futures. Our commitment to North Carolina families dates back to 1899 with our founding in Raleigh as a traditional, campus-based orphanage serving children referred by local Methodist churches. That organization, Methodist Orphanage, is known today as Methodist Home for Children and, still headquartered in Raleigh, has evolved and expanded to serve families regardless of their religion, race, or socioeconomic status. Today, the children in our care live throughout the state. We partner with public agencies and raise funds through private gifts and grants to provide the best in evidence-based services. We could not do this life-changing work without the gracious support of our friends. Thank you to the Impact club for giving us a platform to tell our story, and partner with caring people who want to make a difference in our local community.
