Louisiana Methodist Children’s Homes

We provide comprehensive, intensive residential care.

Our work began in 1902 when Louisiana Methodists who had a heart for orphans created the Louisiana Methodist Orphanage. From a small, wood-frame foster home in Bunkie, Louisiana, Louisiana United Methodist Children and Family Services has grown into a state-wide ministry with three regional residential programs providing care for 140 children; community counseling site; Methodist Foster Care, with therapeutic foster homes for 130 kids; the OWL Equine Therapy program; and the Outdoor Wilderness Learning Center.

“It was one of the biggest impacts of my young life! I had counselors that helped me through healing and believing love and hope for my future I was very happy there. Pray for all the children whom are blessed to have lived there…past and future! Thank you so much…you will forever have a very special part of my heart”
