Children's Home Completes New Transitional Home for Foster Kids

March 14, 2007

On Sunday, March 11, The United Methodist Children's Home and the Southwest District of the United Methodist Church (UMC) held a dedication service for a new transitional living home. The Milton C. Booth Home will house young men who have aged out of the foster care system.



Bishop Will Willimon of the North Alabama Conference and Rev. Charles Lee, Superintendent of the Southwest District, as well as community leaders attended the service at the site of the new home on the campus of the Tuscaloosa Group Home for boys in Cottondale, Alabama.


The Children's Home named the transitional living home after the late Rev. Milton C. Booth, a Untied Methodist minister who envisioned its construction and who inspired hundreds to help build it.
