It’s Our Birthday!

For over 37 years, Childcare Resources has made claim as Central Alabama’s only child care resource and referral agency. In 1984, United Way of Central Alabama created Childcare Resources as an outgrowth of a child care task force to address critical child care needs identified in Jefferson, Shelby, and Walker Counties, with Blount County added to the service area in 1988. Childcare Resources is a Birmingham, Alabama based non-profit organization whose mission is to make quality care and education of children happen by providing information, education, and assistance to families, providers of child care, and the community.

Join us in celebrating of our 37th year serving children, families, and child care providers in Central Alabama by supporting Childcare Resources in one (or more!) of these ways below:

  • Advocate: Check out any of our advocacy resources to help play a part in affecting positive change to benefit the communities in which we work and live. There's power in numbers! One simple, yet effective, way to advocate for the children in our community is to write a letter to your legislator about the work Childcare Resources is doing in our community.

  • Planned gifts to Childcare Resources through a will, trust, or by beneficiary designation can be a richly rewarding experience for you and your family, while creating a lasting impact on families supported by the Childcare Resources mission – both now and in the future. Reach out to Childcare Resources’ Director of Development at for information about how you can make a sustainable and long-lasting difference in our community.

  • Set up a monthly pledge payment: A recurring donation allows you to make an easy and sustainable impact on our mission. To set up a monthly giving payment, click here or contact Morgan Emahiser at for questions or more information.

  • Collect and donate items from our Wish List to help offset operational costs for the agency while supporting those who benefit from our mission.

  • Support the 2021 Virtual Fairy Tale Ball: Central Alabama’s premiere family event is returning IN-PERSON with more magic than ever before! Click here to check out this year’s event page, and save the date for an enchanting, fun-filled evening benefitting children and families in our community.

  • Support our 2021 Next Generation Campaign: We are less than $700 from reaching our goal! Help us reach our goal of serving even more children and families who turn to us each day.

  • Follow us on social media: Check out our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages to keep up with important agency updates and information. By “liking,” commenting, and sharing our posts with your friends, you help provide awareness and information about our programs and services.
