To continue to meet the needs of the vulnerable children and families in Alabama and Northwest Florida.

Our ministry offers services across Alabama and Northwest Florida to help transform the lives of thousands of abused, neglected, and traumatized children, young mothers, and struggling families.

For the children, youth and families we serve, the facilities and staff are perhaps the most crucial component of our ministry. Our houses are homes - often the only real ones our kids have ever known. Our staff members are so much more than employees earning paychecks. They are the biggest cheerleaders our boys and girls have ever had. They are hugs and kisses, high-fives, heart-to-heart talks, nurturers, rule enforces, and role models. They are the family our children and youth so desperately deserve.

We have a myriad of ways that we know we are making progress. One measurement of our success is through our FOCUS Family Preservation program that aims to keep families together. This intensive in-home treatment provides families with the skills necessary to handle challenges in a healthy way. UMCH's FOCUS program has a 95-98% success rate.

In 2018 we ministered to 1,356 babies, children, teens, young adults and families. We facilitated: 24,116 days of foster care provided for 165 children and youth while training and supporting 86 foster families. 17,097 days of care delivered to 83 youth in residential homes, providing food, clothing, counseling, nurturing and guidance. 265 families kept together through intensive in-home treatment, positively impacting the lives of 1,021 individuals. 27 forever homes found for children while also training and conducting home studies for families considering adoption.
