At the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home, we care for children who have been the victim of abuse, neglect or abandonment. And while it is better that they are out of that environment, our children still miss that feeling of family. During this season of their life, we become their family. And with your support, it can be a truly memorable Christmas.
Imagine how they feel, not having that cup of hot chocolate in front of the tree and reading a holiday story such as T’was The Night Before Christmas.
The Florida United Methodist Children's Home was established in 1908 to provide a home for orphans and other children that had nowhere else to live.
Today it serves as a diverse ministry with two campuses that include residential, therapeutic group, foster and emergency shelter care. The Home also provides independent living assistance and a community child care center.
In recent years, studies on equine-assisted therapy show that care and training of horses can have a powerful effect on a person. Experts now see the positive benefit it has on children from traumatized backgrounds too — everything from developing healthy relationships and a strong work ethic to overcoming fears, building teamwork and much more.
