CHELSEA — Alabama Youth Homes in Westover has merged with King’s Home in Chelsea, according to an April 15 news release.

Since 1990, Alabama Youth Homes has provided housing for abused and neglected youth. Lew Burdette, president of King’s Home, said King’s Home will continue to provide “the same excellent care for all residents of Alabama Youth Homes.”

“Alabama Youth Homes is a perfect fit with our operation,” Burdette said. “What a blessing to have the opportunity to serve more young people who need help and hope for their lives.”

King’s Home, formerly King’s Ranch and Hannah Homes, provides housing for women and children rendered homeless due to abuse, domestic violence, neglect and abandonment. In addition to promoting spiritual development, King’s Home teaches skills and provides services to help residents heal from their past.

Kings’s Home will now operate 22 Christ-centered homes in three Birmingham metro counties.
