Letter from CEO Friends and Family: You made a difference during 2016! Because of you, we were able to improve the services we offer. We were able to change lives. We are serving more kids, in more ways, more effectively, but we still have a long way to go. I know you will be there, loving our kids, praying for our staff and giving sacrificially every step of the way. I know this because of the outpouring of support we received last year. Volunteers renovated homes. Sunday school classes conducted bible studies and purchased Christmas gifts. Prayer warriors from all over the state interceded on behalf of the least, the lost and the left behind. And Methodist churches across the state let the light of Christ pierce the darkness through our first special offering. You are amazing and your work did not go unnoticed! But our work is never done because there will always be generations of children and families that will need to experience the grace and mercy of our risen Lord. This will only happen if we are committed to one purpose of focusing our eyes on Jesus, readying our feet for action and giving our hearts to the ones we are called to love. After three years of hard work, weakening eyesight and a few less follicles of hair, I am more excited than ever about what God will do through His people for our kids. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to serve with you. May the Lord continue to bless each of you and this ministry always.

Independence United Methodist Church participated in the Little Light of Mine special offering this year. For every $25.00 that was given to the Little Light of Mine Special offering, a strand of Christmas lights were placed on the tree in the sanctuary. By December 11th, there were over 80 strands of lights on the tree! Rev. Jim Glass said, “The response was amazing! We strongly believe in what MCH is doing in the lives of the children and their families they serve and we were happy to help make a difference.”

Because of Christ,

Charles M. Duggar President and CEO *Our youth’s names/pictures maybe changed for their safety.

The Little Light of Mine Special Offering was a success because Methodist churches across our state stepped up to support the children who call MCH home. We thank each and every one of you for your love, prayers, dedication, and financial support you showed us. Members of the Independence United Methodist Church bestowed us with a large check in support of our youth, which we greatly appreciated. Thanks!


Home at Last The Holbrooks had always wanted to be foster parents, and so having 4 young children of their own, they felt God calling them to foster a teenager. After going through the training and licensure process, they met Karah. She was placed at MCH when she was 17 years old, and although she had endured much suffering in her life, her bright brown eyes and wide smile told a different story. She was a favorite, and always found a way to make her staff and roommates happy. It is no wonder the Holbrooks fell in love with her and wanted to make her a part of their family. They have been together for 9 months now, and there is no doubt that God had His hand in this placement. MCH recently had a Foster Care Appreciation Dinner, and Karah was asked to read a letter she wrote to the Hollbrooks. As she read it, the audience was in tears by the sincere words she used to describe her new life. Dear Mom and Dad, Just in case I don’t tell you guys enough (which I don’t think is possible), I am so grateful for everything you do and have done for me. I am so happy to be a part of this amazing beautiful family. I couldn’t be happier. I honestly believe God brought us together for a reason, and I’m so glad He did. I don’t think He could have picked a better home nor a better family. You make me smile and laugh on a daily basis and I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am to be here and how relieved I am to be away and stress free for the first time in so long. I never really thought a day like this would come, but man, am I glad it did! I know it’s only been a short time, but I want you to know you mean so very much to me, and I love you dearly. I want to thank you from the bottom to the top of my heart for everything that you do. From thinking of me while grocery shopping and remembering things that

I like and getting them just because, to sharing our love of food and spiciness (lol) and just making sure that I have everything I need. Thank you so very much for going out of your way to make sure I’m happy and taken care of, because I know you didn’t have to do this. But you wanted to, and I am forever grateful for that. Please don’t ever think you aren’t doing a good job, or that you’re falling short because I can assure you you’re doing an amazing job. I just want you guys to know that no matter what happens, and years from now when I’m old and grey, I will always remember you and the amazing life you brought to me. In this short amount of time I’ve learned so much from you both and I will always, always carry that with me for all my days. Thank you, for the amazing opportunity to help me, guide me, and allow me to be the person I’ve always dreamed of being. I love you guys. Love, Your Daughter Karah Because of your support, you allowed the Hollbrooks an opportunity to become foster parents through MCH. Thank you for providing this family with your love, prayers, and financial support, which in turn, allows them to continue to mentor and pour out their love to Karah.

A BIG THANK YOU to our 2014/2016 Board Chair, Nick Myers for leading the MCH Board of Directors for the past two years. Through his service, we have seen great changes take place at MCH. Some of those improvements were: adding the Day Treatment Program, Community Counseling Program, and MYPAC/Wrap around Program; raising the states reimbursement rate, and helping to place MCH as a respected service provider. Thank you for leading us!

Giving Back “People can’t grow to be better individuals if someone doesn’t give back.” Steven O’Neill, owner of the Manship Wood Fired Kitchen in downtown Jackson knows all about giving back, and that is what his mission to MCH has become. O’Neill met Mike Duggar, MCH’s President and CEO at a Rotary Club meeting, and the two became fast friends. Learning of MCH and the type of youth we serve, O’Neill decided to bless our youth with a dinner once a month at the Manship Wood Fired Kitchen. “I wanted to help use our restaurant and the services we provide as a reward system for the youth,” O’Neill stated. “At the first dinner, I talked to the youth about etiquette, business dinner meetings, and how to behave in a formal restaurant style setting.” Our youth have just returned from their third dinner at the Manship, and it just seems to get better each time. Ms. Taylor, as staff member at the Wait’s Home said, “Our girls love going because it opens their eyes to a totally different restaurant style. It’s not McDonalds, and so they have to put their best foot forward. The food is always excellent too!”

Having been adopted himself, O’Neill understands the struggles that our youth are faced with daily. “I was blessed to have been adopted when I was an infant, and my parents are absolutely amazing. I love and appreciate them greatly. I have been blessed in life, and so I have a desire to always pay it forward. I feel like the more I give, the more blessings I get, and so passing them (blessings) along is easy.”

The servers at the Manship are extremely patient with our youth, explaining the items on the menu and answering any questions they have. “It’s a learning experience for them as well, reading off the menu and being exposed to different types of foods.” Sandra Babbitt, Care Manager over the Wait’s Home stated, “The best part of the whole experience is that the servers bring sample appetizers for us to share and all the desserts they have made that day!

O’Neill believes it’s important for youth to have a positive role model and that no matter what life has given you, under any circumstances, you can achieve greatness if you want it bad enough. O’Neill began working in the service industry at the age of 15. He has been everything from a bus boy to a server to a bartender and now, finally, to owning his own restaurant. “It is a ‘self-made’ industry, and if you work hard enough, you can do it.”

Youth Spotlight By coming to Manship every month, O’Neill wants our youth to understand that there is light at the end of the tunnel. There are people in this town who are willing to help them along the way, that are cheering for them, and have their back. He doesn’t want ‘foster children’ to become another statistic. His dream is for them to do well and eventually be the one who can give something back to their community. According to O’Neill, the best part of this whole experience is seeing them light up. “I love seeing their smiles, hearing them laugh and interacting with one another. They are having fun, but I am getting the reward. That is all the joy I need!”

Leave a Legacy Right now, you have the opportunity to be a hero by adding the Methodist Children’s Homes of Mississippi to your estate plan. You will literally be providing a legacy of hope and healing for generations to come. You are providing hope and a home for young girls and boys right here in Mississippi who have been abused and neglected.

DeMario Age: 17 years old He is a man of little words, but his big smile and beaming bright eyes are all it takes to know he’s a friend. He has his act together and big plans for a promising future. He’s a pretty amazing kid, and we’re so glad he’s ours!

Tell me a little about yourself. I am a junior in high school. I like to go places and eat out. My favorite thing to eat is hot wings. In my spare time, I started a car washing business on campus. What is one thing people might not know about you? (Laughing) I am extremely shy. I do not normally open up to people until I know them for a long time and get comfortable with them. Tell me about your car washing business on campus. It started a few months ago when I was bored and wanted to do something. I asked my staff if I could wash the van and it all boomed from there. Now I wash all the vans on campus and some of the staff’s vehicles. I enjoy it, plus I make some extra money! What are some values or lessons you have learned from being at MCH? I have learned how to control myself when I get upset at something. I also have learned that I need to speak up for myself.

If you are interested in receiving our Leaving a Legacy Workbook, please call or email Kate Williams at 601-853-5000 ext. 1222 or Kwilliams@mchms.org.

Who is the one person that you look up to the most? Only one? Can I choose more? (Ha, Ha) I look up to Ms. Melissa because I can trust her. She sees both sides of the story and is a very hard worker. She puts a lot of her own money towards getting us things we like. She is dedicated to us boys. I also like Ms. Tonia because I know she cares about me and she’s not just here for a job. And last, Ms. Glenoria because she cares about us and she does the best in everything she does.

Why I am leaving a legacy

What are your goals or future plans? When I graduate from high school, I want to become a truck driver so that I can go all over the country. One day I would like to own my own trucking company… that would be cool.

“I am leaving a legacy because I believe it is important to leave a portion of my blessings to a charitable organization, like MCH. You should give throughout your entire life, but to leave something after you have left this earth is pretty special too.” —Betty Jane Chatham

What advice would you give someone who just arrived at MCH for the first time? Hang in there and keep your head up. You need to be thankful to be here and follow the rules that the staff have for you. How would you say “thank you” to our donors? Thanks for the support and effort. I really appreciate everything you have done and given me. I am very thankful.

Making a difference

Thanks to Mignon and Leonard Bussell, MCH now has a beautiful 2003 Volkswagon Jetta for our staff to use. This has been such a blessing, and we are extremely grateful for their generous gift!

Cindy Rowsey, Iris Holloway, and Carla Gant spent 3 days at the children’s home organizing the thrift store and supply closet. They also helped us shop for those hard to find Christmas gifts and wrapped presents for our youth. We are forever grateful to them for their love and support of our children. We love y’all!

The members of the Northwest Rankin High School Honor Society knows what teenagers like, and they did not disappoint. A big thanks to these high school students for donating gift cards to our youth. They loved receiving them, and we appreciate you for making this happen!

This sweet and precious lady, Mary Todd of St. Lukes UMC donated items to make over 50 stockings for our children and youth. The stockings were jammed packed with candy, movies, coloring books, and so much more! Thanks for making their Christmas so special!

The ladies of Decatur United Methodist Women have been working hard to make us beautiful quilts. They donated 21 handmade quilts, and each one is unique and gorgeous. We appreciate all the hard work and effort they put into making sure that each youth who comes to MCH receives one. Thanks for sharing your talents with us! Evan Bowman built much needed shelves in our warehouse over Christmas break. Thanks Evan for providing this service to us. You did an amazing job!


We were thrilled that Bo Herring wanted to share his birthday with us again this year! Instead of gifts, his friends brought first aid kits to his party. Our foster parents need first aid kits in their homes, and so Bo’s gifts made it possible for us to provide these to our parents. Thanks Bo, and Happy Birthday! Sardis United Methodist Church blessed us with supplies to help stock our supply closet. Thanks to these members for blessing us with toiletries and diapers. Y’all are a blessing to us, and we appreciate your generosity so much!

A Huge thanks to the Suzanna Wesley group at Brandon UMC for providing 50 Christmas gifts to our children. Their wishes came true because of you, and we are extremely thankful for y’all.

Thanks to the employees at the FDIC Jackson Office for providing a room full of amazing Christmas gifts for our youth. They loved everything so much, and we appreciate you making their wishes come true, and for the smiles and happiness it brought them!

The members of Winborn Chapel UMC in Lucedale, MS provided Christmas items for the Seal home. Their gifts of household items were much needed, and gave this home a fresh, up to date look. Thanks for providing them with fun, new stuff and making them happy! We loved spending the day with Katherine Jordan and Frank Haynes and members of Christ UMC in Jackson this past October. They spent the morning landscaping our property. Thanks to everyone who helped to make our campus beautiful for our children!

McLaurin Heights UMC went above and beyond for the Waits home. They purchased everything on the home’s need list, everything from rocking chairs, kitchen pots to a karaoke machine. Thank you!

Making a difference

Employees at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mississippi came and transformed our campus into a Christmas Dream in December. Thanks to everyone for decorating our offices, homes, and displaying our Christmas village in the cafeteria. It was a beautiful sight, and really put everyone into the Christmas spirit. You made Christmas a little more special for the youth at MCH, and we appreciate that! Aldersgate Methodist Men’s group provided our boy’s with gift cards to purchase new clothes and gift “goodie” bags for Christmas. Thanks for thinking and supporting our boys. They loved shopping and picking out their new clothes. You made their day!

Wow! The Crossgates United Methodist Women brought a carload (6,114) of diapers to MCH in November to help stock our supply closet…which they did! They also donated 37 pillows for our youth. We are thankful for their support of our youth and foster families and the love they always show!

Thanks to Walker Fielder and his Boy Scout Troop 302 for building an amazing walking bridge on our campus. Now, our youth can safely have access to the basketball court and picnic area. We appreciate your willingness to serve your community and make it better! You rock!

Things we Take for Granted... Most of our parents taught us right from wrong, how to make a bed, wash dishes and clothes, mow the lawn, and take out the garbage. But, for the children at the children’s homes, these simple tasks have never been taught to them. Thankfully, we have a staff that acts more like “mamas” and “daddies” rather than employees, and they are dedicated to teaching our children these basic life skills. The girl’s at the McCarty Home have expressed an interest in cooking, and so the staff have designated days that the girls can pick out their own recipes and cook. Some items on the menu are enchiladas, pot roast, chicken potpie, and chicken and dumplings.

The time preparing meals has been wonderful, and they are learning a life skill that they will use for the rest of their lives. They will always remember learning how to cook at the McCarty Home. McCarty Girl’s Favorite Dessert - Kool-Aid Pie 1 Graham cracker crust 1 Packet of Kool-Aid (any flavor you like best) 1 Can of condensed milk 1 8oz. Container of cool whip Mix all ingredients together and pour into graham cracker crust. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours. Enjoy!


Honor/Memorial Christmas in the Family Visitation Room In September, MCH opened the Family Visitation Room on our campus. This room was established as a place where families could visit, reconnect, and work on rebuilding relationships. We are so thankful to have this room, because without it, Kendall would not have had anywhere to spend Christmas with her 11 month old daughter. Kendall is one of our Independent Living residents and has been separated from her baby for the past 8 months. On Christmas Eve, her baby’s social worker drove her to MCH so that they could spend some time together. It was a beautiful reunion! Kendall had all of her daughter’s gifts wrapped, and they had so much fun opening them together. Although the “good-bye” was hard, Kendall has reassurance in knowing that sooner or later they will be together again. She has almost completed her GED and is looking into colleges and is employed at a local restaurant. Kendall is beyond thankful for you, your prayers and support. She is grateful to have the family visitation room, because without it, she would not have been able to spend Christmas with her daughter… and that was all she wanted for Christmas.

We are thankful that Kendall had the opportunity to use the Family Visitation Room to spend Christmas with her baby. This room has seen tears, heard laughs, and brought families together. Thanks to Miskelly’s Furniture and a grant received from the Connectional Ministries Mission Grant and Parkway Hills United Methodist Church for providing this life changing room for our youth and their families.

Why I Give to MCH “The children are our future, and that is why we give. We know that the children at MCH come from unfortunate situations, and everyone should be willing to help. That should be our main purpose. We have been blessed by God, and so when we do our part, the children can benefit and be happy.” —Eric and Candy Feng
