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.

Please click on the link What's New for the latest news including links to pages such as Job Openings and the calendar.

CURRENT NEWS 

We need a bus driver in Russell County.   We still have a few openings for HS and EHS Teachers,Teacher Assistants and Bus Aides starting soon.  If you are interested, please see the information including qualifications on the  Job Openings page.

Enrollment is almost complete.  However, we still are accepting applications for Head Start and Early Head Start for fall 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 will have and maintain a waiting list.

DONATIONS ESPECIALLY NEEDED RIGHT NOW

    Passenger vans, seating 10-14 persons.  We need to be able to transport some of our home based mothers and small children to events at the centers.

    Small panel truck to haul supplies between centers and to pick up donations.

OTHER DONATIONS

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  You have been SO generous over the summer that until we are able to open the Sunshine Shop in mid-September to Early/Head Start parents to take what their children and family members need, we have NO ROOM to accept donations.  We will happily accept donations at the Sunshine Shop on or after September 19. 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

We are open for assistance with Cooling bills.  Please use the appointment scheduler, not the main ACHR phone number.  People at the ACHR number cannot make appointments.   

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.  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).

IN-KIND CHANGES

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.

CALLS ABOUT VACANCIES IN OUR LOW INCOME APARTMENT COMPLEXES

We receive calls about vacancies in our apartment complexes.  We appreciate the interest in these complexes.  However, the information we have about vacancies is not always current.  Only the apartment manager knows whether there is a current vacancy, or if a vacancy is expected, and in what kind of apartment (number of bedrooms, handicapped access etc).

Please click to link to the Housing page.  Near the bottom of the page, there is a list of contact information for each of ACHR's Affordable Housing complexes.
