We provide homes, healing, and hope to families, children, and youth impacted by abuse, neglect and homelessness. We provide homes for children, teens and college-age youth through our foster care program and residential group homes. Our Family Preservation program provides targeted, specific interventions for families who are at risk for having their children removed as well as with families working toward reunifying with their children. We also provide a home for homeless women and children, a population that merges with our service footprint of serving vulnerable children and families.
Embrace Alabama Kids has programs and staff that serve and span the state of Alabama. Our Northwest Florida ministry (Embrace Florida Kids) also has programs in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Walton Counties.
We receive private referrals and referrals from the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR). We are licensed and contracted through DHR to provide residential care, foster care and support programs.
Income and expense vary greatly from program to program, and some are self-funded. Collectively, our Alabama Department of Human Resources contract dollars pay a small fraction of what it costs to run our homes and programs, and funding is always shifting and fluctuating. The remainder of our revenue comes from donors and churches.
We have a variety of methods to accept your tax-exempt donation: Our secure payment processing link has instructions for your credit card, EFT or check; through your financial institution, IRA contribution, and via Venmo.
All funds are considered unrestricted and for “Greatest Ministry Needs” unless the donor provides other instructions to restrict the gift for a specific location or program.

Volunteers are limited at our program locations due to sensitivity, privacy, and safety issues. We do have many community advocates and supporters in our schools and churches who raise funds, collect necessary donations (for our foster families and our teens) provide tutoring, fellowship and social opportunities, and more. Monetary donations and estate gifts ensure we are able to continue our programs long-term. We are always in need of gift cards for entertainment as well.
Additionally, we love to get an invitation to speak at your civic clubs, church groups, etc. Every invitation to speak is an opportunity to gain support from a new segment of the community. Contact us at 1.800.239.3575 or email@example.com to learn more about getting involved!
Embrace Alabama Kids was established in 1890 to provide services to abused, neglected, and abandoned children. What started out as an orphanage in Summerfield, AL, has grown to include a wide spectrum of foster care and family preservation programs in both Alabama and Northwest Florida.
