Application Process

No. Parents/guardians remain the legal guardians, and after a 30-day initial period, they may arrange visitations on a biweekly basis.
No. Generous contributions to the Masonic Villages fund the Masonic Children’s Home, so we do not charge individuals, organizations or the state or federal government for our services.
Due to its thoroughness, the process can take several weeks.
To best serve all youth within a group setting, we cannot accept children with extreme treatment needs, police involvement or serious behavior issues.
No. During the application process, we contact a local lodge to sponsor each child.
Call us at 717-367-1121, ext. 33301 or email us at children@masonicvillages.org. We’ll answer any questions you may have.

We’ll mail an application form and schedule a tour for the child at the children’s home. Once we receive the child’s information, we’ll schedule a weekend visit. After an evaluation, and upon approving the applicant, the director of children’s services arranges a date for the child to move into the children’s home.
