WHY SUPPORT UNITED METHODIST YOUTH HOME?
When a youth is at-risk because they do not have a safe place to stay, are truant because they get their siblings ready for school in the morning, or they just need someone to give them a second chance— the United Methodist Youth Home is there to help.
$100 can provide 1 week of mentorship
"Chasidy and I work together on my packets and also have meaningful talks. This support has helped me while at UMYH. I really enjoy working one on one, too."
-Adrian, Truancy Student
$250- One youth can earn their high school equivalency
"It was very humbling to be able to watch students come in and struggle with basic understanding of Math, Reading and Language and then be able to help them obtain their HSE."
-Amber, Day Education Director
$500 can provide essentials to our residents
"Michael came to UMYH when he was already 18 and had never received medical, eye, or dental care (other than immunizations for school). He had 11 cavities at his first dentist appointment. We spent months working with him on what a filling would look like and how it would help his health."
-Deshay, Wellness Coordinator
$1,000 can fund one youth to receive multiple programs & services
Of the youth in our programs, 55% receive more than one of our services. Our programs are meant to work together to help all of the aspects a youth needs to be successful once they leave our care.
