Louisiana United Methodist Children and Family Services provides intensive residential treatment for children and adolescents in three children’s homes which are located in the bootstrap, heel and toe of Louisiana’s boot-shaped state:

  • Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home – Licensed for 96 beds in Ruston
  • Methodist Children’s Home of Southwest Louisiana – Licensed for 24 beds in Sulphur
  • Methodist Children’s Home of Greater New Orleans – Licensed for 18 beds in Mandeville

All three children’s homes are nationally accredited and are licensed by Louisiana Department of Health to provide Louisiana’s most intensive residential treatment services.

You should know few children require intensive residential treatment services.  More often, other levels of care such as Therapeutic Group Homes, Non-medical Group Homes, Home-based services, Kinship care, or community-based family therapy may be much more appropriate for you and your child. Our admissions team is happy to help direct you to sources of information for further assistance.
