Therapeutic Residential Care
For over a century, Methodist Children’s Homes has cared for Mississippi’s most vulnerable children. During this time we have worked to restore and provide for thousands of children who have suffered severe trauma.
Approach to Care
By offering safe, structured and supportive home environments, life skills training and therapeutic services, we promote healing and help children find permanent stability — emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Our trauma-informed cognitive behavioral model of care guides practice in all of our homes and emphasizes a holistic approach to ministry.

Therapeutic Residential Care Program
Children in Therapeutic Residential Care are given academic support, preparation for living independently, therapeutic and psychiatric support, spiritual guidance, life skills training and recreational opportunities.
This program is specifically designed for young men and women ages 17 to 21. Its goal is to ease the transition from high school to college or to the workforce by providing instruction in budgeting, household management and job skills so that they can live independently as responsible adults.
MCH’s Two of Us program provides care for young women, ages 10 to 19, who are either pregnant or parenting. Like many of our children, these women come to us through the Department of Human Services because they were no longer safe in their homes.
Independent Residential Living Program
This program helps transition our kids from high school to college or the work force. Our independent living program is designed for females between the ages of 16 to 21. Our goal is to provide training, such as budgeting, household management, and job skills that will enable our young people to live independently once they have reached adulthood.
