Visitation Center

What is a visitation center you may ask? It’s a place for foster families and birth families to meet and allow meaningful connections to be made/reestablished. What will our visitation center offer? Since opening, we have allowed children to have 92.5 parental contact hours.

How can you get involved? We need to following items:

  • Computer Speakers
  • Shopvac
  • Card Table and Chairs
  • Small children’s table and chairs
  • DVD or Blu-Ray Movies (PG and Below) (New or used)

Here are links to our Amazon Wishlists:

Sponsorship Opportunities:

  • We offer some unique ways your business, civic group, or church can sponsor a room in our visitation center. Call (334) 560-3062 or e-mail and we’ll be happy to discuss what opportunities we have available.

Birthday Cakes:

Right now there are 120 children in Russell County Department of Human Resources care. Each one of these children will have a birthday, and we want to make it memorable. We can do with a $30 Walmart Gift Card to cover the cost of a personalized birthday cake from the bakery.

Since April we have donated 29 birthday cakes, and the number just keeps going up. We’d love for you to help us make this goal.
