The Methodist Home (TMH) is addressing the needs of at-risk youth throughout Georgia each and every day. We not only provide the basics of food, clothing and shelter, but we give our young people safe and loving homes, therapeutic interventions, and programs and resources to meet their physical, emotional, spritual, social, and educational needs. We give them a FUTURE! The mission of the TMH is to be a model organization that restores childhoods, strengthens families, and culitivates a people-building organization. What originated as a widow and orphans home in the 1800's has evolved to become one of Georgia's premier residential facilities for young people in need serving hundres of children and families annually.
A Methodist Home alumni, Brandy, tells her story and shares how being a resident of the Home allowed her to find herself, and prepared her to succeed in school and life.
Cynthia, a former resident, and her adoptive family tell Cynthia's heart-melting story.
When children come into our care, they typically come to us having suffered severe physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse. Their backgrounds are deastating, but our goal is to restore those childhoods and help them to overcome their tragic pasts and move toward a healthy future. Therapy and residential care equips abused children with the tools to make choices that lead to a better future.
