The community is invited. Prior to coming to the Ranch, Mica spent 23 years at The Methodist Home for Children and Youth in Macon, GA. She began her time at The Methodist Home as a Foster Care Consultant, and held various positions of increasing responsibility before becoming their Director of Community Services. She holds BA degrees in Psychology and Sociology, and MA degrees in Religious Education as well as Marriage and Family Counseling. Mica recently shared her excitement about her new role at the Madison Youth Ranch. “I already feel like I’m at home,” she said. As the Administrator of the Madison Youth Ranch, and a valuable part of the leadership team at the Children’s Home, she will be responsible for the operations, planning, development and implementation of programs for the Ranch. Only a few weeks into her position, Mica has already begun spending time cultivating substantive relationships with the children and folks in the community. Mica shared that she looks forward to first connecting with the child welfare community to learn their needs, to determine how we can best help meet those needs and do it well. Join us to give her a warm welcome to the Madison Community!!


SPECIAL THANK YOU: “Dear Church Family, Thank you so much for the love you all showed us at our "50+1" anniversary celebration. Each card, prayer, Happy Anniversary wish is a blessing to us. The boys and their families enjoyed getting to visit with you all as well. We thank you for the covenant of prayer that has been with us this past year especially since Tom's cancer diagnosis. The anniversary book, for which many of you wrote letters, is something we'll treasure forever. Who knew that you all were so great at keeping secrets! We're going to make a scrapbook of all the cards and pictures so we'll be able to read and re-read all of your kind words. Thank you again for lovin' on us and our family.”
