Photos of Louisiana Methodist Children's Home in Ruston, Louisiana

Webb Patio for Family VisitsIn continuous operation for 110 years, Louisiana Methodist Children's Home is located in Ruston, Louisiana, the center of north Louisiana. In the late 1800's and early 1900's the Methodist Episcopal Church South in Louisiana was concerned with the large number of children who were without parents or homes. At the instigation of Rev. C. C. Weir, the potential for ministry to orphans was actualized with the creation of the Louisiana Methodist Orphanage in 1902. In 1904, the first residence was opened in Bunkie, Louisiana. That same year, forty acres of land in Ruston were deeded to the Orphanage Board and in 1906 the Orphanage was relocated from Bunkie.

Today, Louisiana Methodist Children's Home is the setting for a continuum of holistic, behavioral health services for children and families. Located in the 19 buildings on the Ruston campus are the administrative offices for Louisiana United Methodist Children and Family Services, the Family Counseling Center, residential treatment facilities, the chapel and training center, the John H. Allen Career Center and the Lorraine Howard Educational Center.
