The Caring House (Hospice Family Care)

The Caring House provides a safe place for children ages 3-18 and their families to cope with the death of a loved one and share their grief with others. We recognize that grief is a natural reaction to the loss of a loved one. The duration and intensity of grief is unique for each individual. Within each of us is the natural capacity to heal, and acceptance and caring facilitate that healing process.

ABCStudent Program (Internet)

The ABC for Students program will help households throughout Alabama access internet this fall.  The Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students program will provide free internet access for eligible students who are enrolled in the National School Lunch Program through their schools. We are working to make the process as easy as possible for students who choose to participate.

If your student is enrolled in the National School Lunch Program through their school, you are already enrolled in the Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students program. You will receive a prepaid voucher by U.S. mail by the end of August. Then all you’ll have to do is call the internet service provider of your choice, give them your voucher code, and sign up for service.

If you have recently moved, please call your school to update your address.
