The new 126-acre children’s home now under construction by Louisiana United Methodist Family and Children’s Services in Loranger has transitioned to phase two of major construction, creating a $129 million economic impact over the next ten years with the majority of the benefits flowing into Tangipahoa Parish.
A $2 million grounds preparation phase was recently completed on the campus, and a new $7.5 million construction contract has been awarded to Frank A. Anzalone General Contractor, for phase two construction of the new buildings. LUMCFS is a non-profit organization dedicated to children’s health and well-being. The new Methodist Children’s Home of Southeast Louisiana and Greater New Orleans (MCHSELA) will serve children throughout Louisiana who need intense therapeutic care.
The organization, known for its extensive and specialized work with abused, neglected, and homeless children, has similar facilities in Ruston, Sulphur and Mandeville. The new Tangipahoa campus will replace the Mandeville facility. To learn more go to lumcfs.org.
