CARE House, Inc.

Children who are sexually and physically abused have to endure multiple interviews by lawyers, police, doctors, social workers and counselors.

In 1985, the Baldwin County Department of Human Resources, Sheriff's Department and District Attorney's office formed a Multi-Disciplinary Team in order to limit this lengthy and traumatic investigative process. It soon became evident that a central location was needed - one that would convey protection, comfort, dignity and care. CARE House opened its doors in 1989.

Family Promise of Baldwin County, Inc.

Family Promise of Baldwin County is an Interfaith Hospitality Network, IHN. This program is a network of fourteen "host" churches and six "support" congregations that provide overnight lodging, meals, and hospitality to homeless families with children.

A mother loses her job, a father is kept from working by an injury, a family is forced from their home by fire or natural disaster. Healthcare costs soar, public transportation is underfunded, affordable housing is almost impossible to find. These are the reasons why families now make up 40 percent of the homeless population, and why one out of every four homeless people is a child.

In response to this crisis, our Interfaith Hospitality Network brings the faith community together to help our families regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity.
