Albany- There aren't enough homes to take in all the foster children who need a safe and loving place to stay.

The Frederick Wilson House will now help with that mission in Albany. It was dedicated today by First United Methodist Church. Having a Methodist Children's home in Albany was the vision of Jane Willson and her late husband Harry Willson.

"Now it takes care of the children who are lost and abused and they give them love and send them to school and give them college educations," Willson said. "It's a wonderful, wonderful institution."

There are similar homes in Macon and Valdosta.
