THE CIRCLE OF LOVE FOUNDATION SHELTERS WE SUPPORT
The Circle of Love Foundation supports a number of local shelters in Birmingham, Alabama. We sponsor shelters that focus on making a difference in the lives of the homeless by providing programs designed to get them back on their feet. Currently we sponsor: Olivia’s House, First Light, Jessie’s Place, The Foundry, and The Lovelady Center. Please click on their names to view their website and learn more about the programs they offer. If you work with a shelter with similar programs and are looking for The Circle of Love to sponsor the children for Christmas or back-to-school, please contact us. The only present we want for Christmas is a longer list of names to deliver hope-filled boxes to.
WHY HOMELESS CHILDREN
According to a 2009 study by the National Center on Family Homelessness, 1.5 million (one out of fifty) American children are left homeless each year. We at The Circle of Love Foundation make it our mission to recognize that prospects for these children are not ideal, and to give them hope for the future. Will they ever be able to get the good education they need to break the cycle of homelessness? Will they grow up to be productive adults, or will their hardships as a child leave them without the necessary tools to do so?
