Indiana United Methodist Children’s Home, Inc. was organized in 1915 by Miss Angie Godwin, a Methodist Deaconess. With great zeal and ability, she operated a home for orphans in Greencastle, Indiana. In 1922-23, all three conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church sponsored and endorsed the Home. In 1924, the Home moved from Greencastle to its present location in Lebanon, Indiana. Over the years, many changes have occurred, and the program has developed to meet the needs of the children it serves. The philosophy at Indiana United Methodist Children’s Home, Inc. involves a genuine concern and love for each child. Our multi-faceted treatment program aids youth who cannot cope with the everyday responsibilities of family living.
Today, Indiana United Methodist Children’s Home is an open campus facility with group homes designed to offer services to youth who need a less restrictive setting.
Youth who benefit the most from the services offered by the Home include:
Youth who are experiencing difficulties in the educational setting, both academic and/or behavioral.
Youth who have a history of alcohol or drug abuse but are not in need of inpatient substance abuse treatment.
Youth who have completed inpatient psychiatric or drug/abuse treatment and need transitional placement prior to returning home or being placed in a less restrictive placement (i.e., foster home, independent living).
