Our Mission is to follow the example of Christ by embracing all God’s children … one child, one family at a time.
The Children’s Home makes a real difference in the lives of children. It has helped to transform the lives of thousands of hurting children since 1890. Many of our alumni are now successful adults who are giving back to the communities which gave to them. The need continues, however, and there are hundreds of other children who require our help. By supporting the United Methodist Children’s Home, YOU can make a life changing difference.

We presently offer the following services:

Residential Programs – Group homes for children, teens, and young mothers; transitional living homes for young adults

Foster Care Programs – Recruitment, training, licensing and support of therapeutic and regular foster homes

Family Preservation & Support Services – For families dealing with child abuse and neglect

Adoption Services – Adoption home studies, scholarships and family aid

Knabe College Scholarship Program – Provides youth the opportunity to attend college either in Tuscaloosa or Florence.  Click here to learn how to become a Knabe Scholar.

Family Aid – Program available to former and current UMCH residents and foster children, or those in our Transitional Living Programs, who find themselves in financial crisis.
