BigHouse is a Christ-centered non-profit ministry in Opelika, AL dedicated to meeting the needs and improving the quality of life of children in foster care.
BigHouse began as the dream of two college students to impact the world of foster care in a positive way. After being personally exposed to the needs these children and families have, they knew they could no longer sit back and do nothing. Now, BigHouse is engaging families, volunteers and community members across the state of Alabama to impact their local foster care community. Not everyone is called to be a foster parent, but everyone CAN do SOMETHING. Through the resources of the local community and the time and effort of volunteers, we aim to provide experiences and opportunities of a "typical" childhood to children who so desperately need to be kids.
We want them to know that their community LOVES and CARES about them and that they are loved unconditionally by a Heavenly Father.
We will display this love in practical ways - through our programs and events:
Clothes Closet - Mobile Clothes Closet - Kids' Night Out - Tutoring - Mentoring - Food Bank - Birthday Club - Care Packages - Glitz, Glam, and Gowns - Swimsuit and Towel Drive - Back to School Bash - Family Beach Retreat - Fall Festival - Breakfast with Santa - Teen Christmas Party - Santa's Workshop
