WHO We Are

Welcome to the Masonic Home for Children at Oxford!

MHCO exists for one purpose — to help children who need a stable, caring and loving home.  We do not replace a family — we provide. We teach, guide, nurture, and share, focusing on life both at and after MHCO, so we can help a child determine his or her own path for the future.  Our state licensed and nationally accredited home uses a family-living model that provides our children with individual living spaces, essentials needed for daily living, support if they have special needs, and a promise for full development and learning, from infant to young adulthood.

The mission of MHCO is fulfilled through the support of charitable giving. It is also backed by almost a century and a half of faith, concern, and the ability to adapt to the changing needs of society and its children and families. A pre-placement visit allows families, guardians, or childcare advocates to explore all aspects of our care.

If you know of a child in need, please contact us.Is there anything more important than providing for a child? We’re here so children in need have a chance to make their own consequences — to change their lives and their future, which affects all of us.
