Community Partners

At Children's we are fortunate to have many dedicated community partners who are committed to supporting our patients and their families in a variety of ways.

The following organizations represent just a sampling of the partnerships that Children's has throughout the community. For more information about our community partners, or how to become involved with Children's of Alabama, please contact Wynne Speir at 205-638-5014 or

Hand-in-Paw provides animal-assisted therapeutic services to Children's patients throughout the year to many different units within the hospital.

Junior League
Through the Family Fun Times volunteer placement, Junior League volunteers help Children's of Alabama's patients feel as much like "normal" kids as possible. This program aims to give the families a brief respite from worrying and give patients' opportunity to say "Because I'm special, we get to have fun today!" Through the Every Moment Matters volunteer placement, Junior League volunteers optimize the time the children spend in Children's of Alabama's hematology-oncology clinic by providing educational and recreational activities in the waiting room and infusion area for patients and their siblings.

The Birmingham Zoo
The Birmingham Zoo welcomes Children's of Alabama's patients and families to the Zoo throughout the year. In addition, each Spring, the Zoo closes to the public for one night and reopens for Dreamnight at the Zoo—a special night just for Children's patients and their families.
