This is what we do

Provide A Safe Haven

Our goal is to extend as much love and comfort as possible during this critical time in a child’s life, reaching out to meet their every need whether it be physical, spiritual, emotional or mental.


We are capable of caring for up to 10 children at any given time, with placement being coordinated through referrals from the Alabama Department of Human Resources.


Would you like to partner with us in helping children in hard places? You can make a one-time donation, a recurring gift or you can volunteer.
