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.
Everyone in our care is safe and loved and treated as a unique and special creation of God.
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.
Maybe it was from one of your classroom friends or maybe it was from your parents. Do you remember how special it made you feel?
Now imagine what it might feel like to not receive a Valentine’s Day Card from classmates, friends or family members. This absence of affection brings feelings of hurt and heartbreak, diminishing a child’s self-worth.
Join us for our annual Day on Campus open house event on Saturday, March 21st. Come and learn the latest news about our ministry, tour our campus, attend a special program featuring testimonies and performances from our residents, and enjoy a free picnic lunch as we celebrate the exciting work your support enables us to do.
We will be highlighting several special areas of interest at this year’s Day on Campus.
