Well-rooted and Firmly Planted

The United Methodist Children’s Home is now growing as Wellroot Family Services.

Where Resilient Families Take Shape

Home is a special place. Not just a roof over our head, but a safe, secure, loving environment shared with those we care about most. It might be easy to take this concept for granted, but there are thousands of children and young adults in the foster care system of Georgia who don’t know what a stable home feels like. As an agency of The United Methodist Church in North Georgia, the programs of Wellroot Family Services’ (formerly called The United Methodist Children’s Home) were designed to change this reality through faith-centered service. With a focus on supporting youth from infancy through early adulthood, we help people reach their God-given potential through the encouragement and love of a healthy home.
