PATCH which stands for Parents and Their Children is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the children of moms in the Chillicothe Correctional Center and strengthening the test between them.  PATCH provides supervised visits in the PATCH visiting rooms, transportation for children who need rides to visit their moms, a visiting area just for moms and kids, education to help moms become better parents, and support encouragement to help moms improve interactions with their kids.  Our church supports this not-for-profit organization by providing copying services for their three times a year newsletter, as well as providing volunteers to help transport children.  PATCH volunteers who are church members are encouraged to keep the congregation up to date on the program and tell of ways to get involved.  The Chillicothe UMC has been very generous through the years to provide financial support often through Festival of Sharing and Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas special offerings.
