Finally, it begins! We are creating “a new place to call Home”!
The most significant action in the Spring meeting of our Board of Directors was the decision to create a permanent place to call home for Methodist Children’s Home of Greater New Orleans. The Board authorized the purchase of 80 acres in the greater New Orleans region, the design our first building for the property, the appointment of a capital campaign committee to raise funds, and the construction the first building.
Twice as large as our campuses in Ruston and Sulphur, a larger 80-acre property will allow us to designate 40 acres as a residential treatment center and allow us to create a 40 acre mini-Outdoor Wilderness Learning Center. This entire property will be the Methodist Children’s Home of Greater New Orleans. In addition to offering residential services and experiential therapies, it will also serve as our regional center for home and community-based services.
We are excited about creating our own Home in the region for our next 100 years of ministry to children and families in the greater New Orleans region. Join us as we make this happen!
