The Brewer-Porch Children’s Center (BPCC) is a program of the College of Arts and Sciences at The University of Alabama and our programs are closely linked to the university’s mission of Service, Teaching and Research. Brewer-Porch was established by the Alabama Legislature in 1970 to provide a model treatment program for Alabama’s special needs children, adolescent, and their families. Thus, we have a long and rich tradition of building on children’s strengths with patience, care and compassion. Our mission is to serve children and families with behavioral health needs in order to maximize their potential, to educate students and professionals in the field, and to develop innovative approaches to clinical practice. Our services include: intensive residential, short-term treatment and evaluation residential, moderate-level residential, outpatient day treatment, and community autism intervention. Treatment is based on an interdisciplinary approach and our treatment team includes nurses, psychologists, teachers, social workers, therapists, mental health workers, consulting psychiatrists, and consulting dietitians.
The PSA supports Brewer-Porch by raising funds that provide the Center’s residential children with much needed support during the holiday season. During the Christmas season, BPCC will have approximately 60 children and adolescents (ages 6 – 16) on in the residential programs. If you would like to give to this worthy cause, make a gift online and select “Brewer Porch PSA Project” and note your gift is for Brewer-Porch. Holiday donations will be accepted through December. This year’s goal is to raise $5,000.
