We Need You!

Harris Home For Children exists largely thanks to the support of our community. Your financial donation will help us provide food, clothing, housing accommodations, school supplies, and other necessary expenses required to adequately take care of the needs of each child.

Harris Home For Children requires a constant supply of home-goods. For example, we use enough laundry soap for more than 4,000 loads of laundry and serve more than 22,000 meals per year.

Needless to say, the quantity of goods and resources required on an annual basis are quite large. It’s because of supporters like you that we continue to serve the children in our community and around the state of Alabama.

If you would like to help us strengthen our outreach and adequately support our children, please donate or Contact Us with any questions

Friends of

Without the support of the community, our mission would be impossible. The Friends of Harris Home For Children is a Program that allows organizations to Partner to create an environment and opportunities for children to enjoy a normal childhood experience. 

Typical relationships include Financial Support, In-Kind Services and Donations, and Helping Hands to complete necessary campus projects.


The Harris Home For Children could not operate without the amazing Team of Volunteers who Donate their time and skills to better our children and our community.


Whether it is through Volunteering, Tutoring, Mentoring, providing a special meal, or merely sharing a warm hug and a smile, sharing your gifts with others will always bring a smile to your face and impact the life of a child.
