Every day, Methodist Home for Children transforms the lives of children in need. It is our singular mission to create order where there was chaos, to create hope where there was despair.
A critical source of support for our work is the annual MHC Sunday collection, taken in United Methodist churches this year on February 17. We rely on the unwavering generosity of churches and friends to meet the growing needs of children in our care—always in service to God. In giving to this Rainbow Covenant Advance of the NC Conference (#S-03500), 100% of your gift will go directly to the ministry.
➤ A child returns to a stable home from foster care when her father commits to responsible parenting.
➤ A teen leaves a group home with renewed purpose and hope for his life.
➤ A child, abused by her birth mother, is adopted into a family that already loves her.
➤ A teen in a group home improves his reading skills by three grade levels.
➤ A developmentally delayed toddler receives early childhood services her mother could not afford.
➤ A boy who started life with nothing goes to college with MHC financial support.
➤ A family—out of options for its son, who has mental and developmental delays—finally finds hope for him in specialized treatment.
Last year, Methodist Home for Children was able to serve 1,472 young people and family members. We had about 400 children in care on any given day covering a 50-county service area. But for each one of these children we help, we must to raise $1,000 in private funds to cover unmet expenses. We are able to do this thanks to the generosity of our friends in the United Methodist Conference. Your gifts and MHC Sunday offerings have made a tremendous difference in the lives of children.
We hope your church will participate in MHC Sunday, and we’d be delighted to send envelopes if you need them. Contact Jennifer Cooper at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888.305.4325 ext. 305. You can also download an insert at www.mhfc.org/docs/bulletin_insert.pdf.
