Methodist Services provides life enriching programs to children, adults and families as they face the challenges of limited resources, increased poverty, homelessness, disabilities and inequities in education. We provide early childhood education, school age programs, housing services, supports for families, mental health and counseling services, and nutrition programs.

Early Childhood & School-Age Education

Children need a safe and stimulating place to go when school is out and parents cannot be home: a place that nurtures growth, develops potential and bridges time between family and school life.

Housing/Residential Services

Catastrophic life events, serious, persistent and chronic behavioral health challenges and/or lack of parenting skills can lead to a disruption of familial safety, stability, well-being and unity. When disruption occurs in the form of children placed in foster care and/or homelessness, Methodist can provide the intensive supports and services necessary to stabilize the family and restore their lives.

Family Support Services

Methodist’s Family Support Services teaches parents to understand and use positive parenting techniques. Parents are encouraged to build healthy relationships with their children, develop strategies for spending quality one-on-one time and create opportunities to grow as a family.

Community Counseling Services

Sometimes life can feel overwhelmingly difficult. Whether the issue is separation or divorce, managing the effects of trauma, parenting a child, grieving a loss, or living with the symptoms of a mental illness such as Major Depression or Bipolar Disorder, the highly trained staff of Community Counseling Services is ready to help.

Heritage Farm

Heritage Farm aims to create a sustainable, community based food system by growing and providing fresh produce and offering hands-on education and life skills to the families we serve. Methodist Services believes investing in the soil is an ultimate investment in our families and communities.

Giving

Oftentimes people want to know how they can help…what they can do to make a difference for the individuals we serve. One of the easiest ways to make an immediate and direct impact is to support Methodist Services financially.

United Methodist Church Connection

Throughout the 140 years of ministry, Methodist Services has maintained a historical relationship with the United Methodist Church, although no organizational relationship exists.  As one of the Health & Welfare agencies of the Eastern PA Conference of the United Methodist Church, Methodist Services strives to communicate regularly with constituents of area churches about the ongoing programs and services provided by the agency.  Along with individuals, businesses and community groups, churches have long provided strong financial support to the Methodist mission of serving children and their families.
