Are you a service oriented individual who aspires to impact the lives of others in your everyday life and career? If so, employment at the Masonic Home for Children at Oxford is the opportunity for you.
The Masonic Home For Children began services in 1873. It is one of the longest operating homes for children in the country. Since its beginning, MHCO has provided a home for children whose families are in need. It is a licensed residential childcare facility offering a wide range of social services to children and their families at no cost to the family. The home is located within the city limits of Oxford, North Carolina. A large and active alumni association as well as more than 34,000 Masons across the state contribute to the care and keeping of our large family.
MCHO 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.
