Alabama Council on Human Relations, Inc.
-Committed to equal opportunity, and providing services and advocacy to Alabama children and families in need since 1954
Welcome to the Alabama Council on Human Relations, Inc. web site.
Headquartered in Auburn, Alabama, the Alabama Council on Human Relations, Inc., (ACHR) administers programs such as Head Start and Early Head Start which address educational, nutritional, health and social services needs of children and families. Information about ACHR and its programs can be found on our pages.
EDELMAN CENTER will be CLOSED on November 3. We have been notified by the power company that the electricity will be off all day so they can work on their equipment in the area. All other ACHR centers will be open as usual.
We still have an opening for a HS Teacher and aTeacher Assistant. We have openings for Bus Aides. If you are interested, please see the information including qualifications on the Job Openings page.
Enrollment is complete for fall 2016. We maintain a waiting list and so will continue to accept applications for Head Start and Early Head Start for 2016. If you are interested, you can pick up an application at any of our centers. Children are accepted based on a points system with highest priority accepted first.
We now are on Facebook at "ACHR - Alabama Council on Human Relations, Inc." Exact address: www.facebook.com/AlabamaCouncil. Look for our logo. "Like" us to follow us for current news & reminders as well as schedule changes (such as for those pesky storms).
DONATIONS ESPECIALLY NEEDED RIGHT NOW
· Small panel truck to haul supplies between centers and to pick up donations.
· Passenger vans, seating 10-14 persons.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! People in the community were SO generous over the summer. We have opened the Sunshine Shop to parents who were excited to find so many nice things to help their children and families and so we again are able to accept donations.
If you have preschool children's books and gently used educational toys/materials, please save them for us. We have something special that will start soon and will need them.
Again, thank you so much.
ENERGY ASSISTANCE -
Energy Assistance is CLOSED until the the heating season which begins in January. We continue to accept appointments for housing counseling and other services.
When we have energy assistance funds, the appointment scheduler will open on Monday the last week of each month so people can make appointments for the next month. Please use the appointment scheduler, not the main ACHR phone number. People at the ACHR number cannot make appointments. Even when appointments are fully booked, if someone cancels, an appointment will open. If slots are full, please check back.
Residents of Lee County can make (or change) an appointment by either
· clicking http://achr.cascheduler.com and then following the instructions OR
· calling (334) 246-5266 and following the instructions.
Remember, the Auburn office has moved. We are now at 950 Shelton Mill Road (the old City Church).
As many of you know, we had a truck with a lift that we used to transport in-kind and also other items. Currently that truck is not working, and because it will be an expensive repair, it won't be for awhile.
As a result, we cannot pick up in-kind from homes.
We cannot accept in-kind deliveries at our Auburn location because often we cannot then transport them.
Donors are welcome to bring donations to our Sunshine Shop (301 Avenue E -- behind Darden Center on 601 S. 4th) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00.
We appreciate your patience, and very much appreciate your donations.
