"I like being able to sleep at night knowing that no one will come in and hurt me." Jessica came to MCH because her mother's boyfriend was sexually abusing her. She is now safe, in school, and beginning to heal from her past. "I owe everything to MCH, and I have no idea where I'd be without this place...It is my home."
The Methodist Children's Homes will soon open the Waits Home on campus, which will offer 10 young ladies with a safe place to live.  The Waits Home is the 6th house on campus to be renovated and remodeled since the property was purchased in 2010. 

Thank you to the donors, prayer warriors, and over 200 Methodist volunteers who played a role in the renovations of the Waits Home.  These individuals have been the hands and feet of Jesus over the past couple of months, and now the Methodist Children's Homes has the opportunity to minister to more girls like Jessica who desperately need and deserve a safe, stable, and loving home. 
Please join MCH in celebrating the Waits Open House and Prayer Dedication on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015.  The dedication ceremony will begin at 10 a.m., with come and go tours from 9 a.m. - noon.  MCH is located at 805 North Flag Chapel Road, Jackson, MS 39209.
The Methodist Children's Homes recently received approval to open another boys home.  They are in need of two mini-vans.  Spread the word.
