Rooted and Established in Love
Like all organizations that have navigated over a century of change, your United Methodist Children’s Home has long embraced, and effectively responded to changes in the child welfare field through many creative innovations to our ministry. These innovations have not been driven or shaped by whim—they have been driven and shaped by a steadfast focus on our mission to serve children, young adults and families in need.
As we look toward our future, we are proud to introduce a new name that reflects both our tremendous growth and our unlimited potential, while preserving our deep foundations in The United Methodist Church. This new name, Wellroot Family Services, was borne out of the same steadfast focus on our mission, and was the result of an intense process of research and planning. To be well-rooted is to be firmly planted, to feel stable, and to feel taken care of and secure. To be well-rooted is to have the support and love you need to become the person God intends for you to become.
Now, as Wellroot Family Services, The United Methodist Children’s Home continues to grow with a name that embodies our commitment to the children, young adults and families we serve together as an agency of the North Georgia Conference—a commitment that has not wavered since the day we opened our doors.
