Resource and Relief Parents
As a professional, you can provide a tremendous help to our residents by making an in-kind donation of your services. Doctors, dentists, lawyers and other professionals can donate their services for a tax donation. If you are a professional that would like to donate their services, please call the Business Office at (205) 467-6226, ext. 1222.
Each month, our Houseparents get one weekend off beginning on Friday and ending on Sunday evening, to regroup and recharge so they can best serve our children. There are two ways our children are taken care of during this time:
Resource Parents. We pair each child with a couple who is willing to keep him or her one weekend every other month. This is called the child’s Resource Family.
Relief Parents. Our Relief Parents come to the Ranch one weekend from Friday evening until Sunday evening every other month. Relief Parents provide time off for our Houseparents by actually 'moving in' for the weekend.
If you would like more information about becoming Relief or Resource Parents, please call Donna Duke at (205) 467- 6226.
