The United Methodist Youth Home is planning to build a New Boy’s Home and we’d like your help to reach the $400,000 goal!

It takes a lot to change the way a person sees their life. Poverty, abuse, depression, and fear can be very painful to experience, and without the tools to deal with them the effects can be traumatic. At UMYH we do whatever we can to help heal the brokenness in the youth we serve, in order to prepare them for healthy lives. We believe this means giving them every opportunity to succeed. 

In order to expand and improve the services we offer to at-risk boys, we’re raising funds to build them a New Group Home and we need your help! Our current boys' home is a modular home that was donated by a church many years ago. It has served its purpose, but has become worn down over the years. The new boys' home will be larger than the current home and will allow us to house as many boys as we do girls in our residential program. It will also have bigger bathrooms, a more accessible kitchen, a storm shelter, and a brick structure.

Thanks to the commitment of our dedicated Board of Directors, we’ve already raised over half the budget. If you see the value in breaking cycles of poverty and abuse in our youth in order to invest in our future, please partner with us in making this dream a reality! You can donate online or with a check - make sure to note in the check memo or online donation comment box that the donation goes toward the capital campaign/boys' home.
