Project Greene Light
History of Project Greene Light
Mrs. Cora Reid Greene is the inspiration behind who we are and what we do. Her devotion and leadership helped create an emergency shelter home for foster children.
In 1987 Cora Reid and her son, Judge George Greene, saw a need to take care of children entering court-appointed custody during late hours or weekends when normal response and placement were difficult.
Out of the need and their determination was born The Phenix City-Russell County Council for Abused and Neglected Children. The council opened an emergency shelter for children entering care that would be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to open its arms to children until another safe, nurturing, and more permanent foster home could be found. While our name has changed our mission remains the same, to provide support for foster children in East Alabama.
