Showing Care to Kids in Healing

Birthdays hold special significance for children, as they are meant to be filled with happiness and cherished memories. At the BCCAC, our utmost priority is ensuring that our children can set aside their hardships and simply revel in joy on their special day. We are reaching out to our compassionate community, seeking support in making these heartfelt birthday wishes come true. One of the parents we aim to assist has expressed a desire for a toy horse trailer, indicated in the link, along with a 5 Below Gift card to enhance their child's birthday celebration. Your support in making these wishes a reality would mean the world to us and bring immeasurable joy to these children and their families.


Punching Bag for Therapy Client

BCCAC provides services for children and non-offending caregivers impacted by abuse. One of the services we offer our children is trauma-focused counseling. A child who is currently working in counseling is seeking assistance with a punching bag and supplies as a tool for therapy. 

Father lost job - Fairhope family needs assistance with utility bill and groceries

Local family of 8 was supported by one income but the father recently lost his job. Parents need assistance with $401 electric bill and $200 for groceries to get them through the next month while he looks for a new job.  Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Just click "I Can Help" to donate. 

Children finally have a home to live in - let's get them some beds!

Update: Bedding and pillows have been donated. Family Promise was able to provide the 2 queen mattresses, boxsprings and one bed frame; an additional bed frame was purchased by neighborhood bridges.
Mom and her 5 children (3 in elementary and 2 teens) had been living in a shared residence with family and were even homeless for a short time. Now they have their own place! The teens are sharing an air mattress and the littles are sleeping on the floor. Can you help to get these kids into beds? The bedrooms are small so the need is for 2 queen sized beds and neutral colored (grey would be great) bedding for both. The teens have pillows but the 3 littles all need pillows - they are currently using stuffed animals. Delivery of items can be facilitated through neighborhood bridges. Your kindness would put a smile on these children's faces!
