Methodist Children’s Home Society
45 boys and young men call Methodist Children’s Home Society “home”. MCHS houses and cares for male youth who have been abused or neglected and removed from their families. In addition to housing, they provide trauma-based treatment services and therapies, independent living skills training, and transitional housing services. MCHS also recruits and trains foster and adoptive families and places hundreds of Michigan’s male and female children of all ages into safe havens and forever families.
Methodist Children’s Home Society need enthusiastic and caring people to be tutors and mentors for the boys and young men of The Children’s Village. On top of helping them with homework, volunteers will be asked to be role models and help with motivation in and out of school.
