Since 1917, Brantwood Children’s Home has been providing a safe, stable, structured environment for abused, neglected and other at-risk children. Brantwood is licensed by Alabama’s Department of Human Resources. We are meant to be temporary home until our children can reunify with their biological families, be placed in a forever adopted home, or can live independently on their own.

We provide developmental experiences for children within a setting that also provides adequate food, clothing, shelter, and education. Be it sports, dance, or cheerleading, our goal is to provide disadvantaged youth with the same tools and opportunities that their peers outside of Brantwood receive.

Our vision is to provide an environment where youth are given the tools for success in a culture of love, hope, and care.

    Brantwood serves the abused and neglected children of Alabama by providing for their needs in education, health, communication, and social adjustments.

    We protect children from the traumas of the past and provide a place conducive of healing and emotional growth.

    Through counseling, instructional support, and plain ‘ole love, we provide a safe environment in which the heart can heal and important relationships can blossom.

At the end of a winding drive lined with gingerbread men, beside a sprawling cemetery, atop a hill in Montgomery sits a red brick house. Behind its six columns wrapped in twinkle lights, 18 tall windows covered by wreaths and a sturdy green door, there are 26 children. They are [...]
