that is best for you.

There are many ways you can have an impact on the lives changed at Big Oak. Please choose the option that works best for you, and know that we appreciate your support – no matter how or where you choose to give.

Daily Prayer
The true source of power and ability to effect positive changes in our children’s lives is consistent prayer. Please pray daily for our staff and children.

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us."  1 John 5:14
Monthly Financial Support for Daily Necessities
Gifts of $25, $50, $100 or more on a consistent monthly basis help make a difference in our children's lives. These gifts help with our daily need for food, clothing, education, and medical needs throughout the year and are the 'bedrock' of our annual budgetary needs. This support can be made int he form of a check through the mail, or we can draft your bank account on a regular basis as you direct.
Memorial/Honorarium Program
The Memorial Program gives you the opportunity to remember a deceased loved one or friend. The Honorarium Program allows you to honor special friends or relatives on occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays. In each case, we will send an appropriate letter acknowledging the gift. To donate now, please click on the button below. If you have questions about our Memorial/Honorarium Program, please call the Business Office at (205) 467-6226, ext. 1223.

Doctors, dentists, lawyers and other professionals can donate their services for a tax donation.

Resource and Relief Parents

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 Britton Gregerson at 256-485-4815.
