In 1962 men from the Churches of Christ began talking about opening a Christian home for children who needed a home away from home. Dreams came true, Midwest Christian Children's Home was established and is located SW of Peterson, Iowa, in the old Brooke Township School. Facilities have grown to include a 200 acre farm.
Midwest Christian Services is a unique residential program because of its Christian philosophy. MCS is a social statement of God's love. Through modeling, authentic love, nurturing and teaching, the Board and staff of Midwest Christian Services will provide an environment in which positive changes can be made and the journey to wholeness can begin.
