Board and Staff

Our Board of Directors represent a community that passionately cares for children and families. Board members work hard to ensure responsible fiscal management and long-term sustainability for Methodist Children's Home Society.

Without the efforts of our committed staff and volunteers, MCHS would not come close to meeting the needs of the children and families we serve each year. Their contributions are critical to our success and enable MCHS to provide hope for tomorrow.
