Methodist Services’ staff, residents & program participants marked the return of Spring, along with Easter & Ramadan. What a joyful community-wide celebration! Special thanks to Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and Highmark Wholecare for joining the festivities!

Cynthia Roberts Benton recently joined Methodist Services / Methodist Home for Children as Vice President & CFO. Cynthia brings over 20+ years of business experience in nonprofit accounting and reporting, finance, strategic planning and operations. In her role as VP & CFO, Cynthia manages the overall financial operations of Methodist, ensuring compliance of required financial and audit regulations, as well as the utilization of industry standards and best practices in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.


Prior to joining Methodist, Cynthia worked for the Fairmount Park Conservancy as the Chief Financial & Operating Officer where she was responsible for providing strategic and financial leadership for the Conservancy’s numerous building and restoration projects.  

In addition to her work at Methodist Services, Cynthia is very active in her church and sorority, Delta Sigma Theta. Additionally, Cynthia is the co-owner of Denise’s Delicacies, a popular, minority-owned, full-service bakery in North Philadelphia. Besides her nonprofit work and civic involvement, Cynthia enjoys traveling abroad, spending time with family and has an appreciation for the arts.

Cynthia stated, “Methodist’s history and mission intrigued me because I saw in them a legacy of transforming lives and community for the better. My desire to use my financial and strategic acumen to support meaning and impactful opportunities and change for people made Methodist a great fit for me.”

Methodist Services appreciates Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro's proclamation declaring April as “Autism Acceptance Month.” This proclamation “recognizes the many individuals on the autism spectrum, their abilities and contributions, and their inclusion within the community.” We couldn’t have said it better!

The “Rooted & Grounded Group” from Sharon Baptist Church came to join us, blessing our new Moms with generous baby gift bags. They also assembled bountiful Spring & Easter baskets for our Teens. So caring & meaningful! We cannot thank you enough!

From Heritage Farm - Farm Manager, Ryan Curran:

"As the weather tempers and the soils warm, signs pop up around the farm that it's time to plant. The green house will begin filling with plants waiting to leave. Dandelions in the fields will mark that it is time to begin planting potatoes. Kales, collards, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, salad greens and peas can be planted next. These cold hearty plants do best in Spring and can handle the fluctuating temperatures. By the end of April we will be racing to make sure everything is planted on time."
