Presbyterian Home for Children

The Presbyterian Home for Children, located in Talladega, Alabama, has provided services to children in need since 1868. Originally founded as an orphanage, today it provides a wider range of services for children and their families.

Residential care is provided for up to 40 children who live on the 88-acre campus near downtown Talladega. Many are referred by the State of Alabama through the Department of Human Resources (DHR). Others are privately placed by families who recognize the need for outside help with a child’s behavioral or educational needs.

Hope Academy, the Home’s SACS-accredited on-campus school, meets the educational needs of both residents and day students from the community who are attracted by
the small class size and personalized attention of the school.

Family Bridges, an outreach program of the Presbyterian Home, focuses on helping families work through difficult times and stay together safely. It offers services centered on the family and designed to resolve specific difficulties by building on each family’s unique strengths. Family Bridges is located in the Clay/Chalkville area near Birmingham.

Gifts from donors make up more than half of the operating costs of the Presbyterian Home for Children. CharityNavigator has recognized the Presbyterian Home for its good stewardship of donor gifts. 90 cents of every dollar you give to the Home goes directly to support of the children in our care — very little goes to administration and fundraising.

Green Hill members wishing to donate to the Presbyterian Home for Children may use one of the special envelopes located in the pew racks.  Envelopes will also be made available at the Thanksgiving Dinner this Sunday, November 18, in the Fellowship Hall.
