A Home for Girls

The girls who live at Davidson Farms are promised three words when they join our family: Hope, Heal and Home. 

Hope that better days are ahead, and that even on the hard days they will not journey alone. A time to heal from the hurt - physically, emotionally, and otherwise - that led them into foster care.

A home where they will be safe, cared for, and loved.

Davidson Farms is home to girls ages 10-19 and serves girls across the states of Alabama and Tennessee. A house mom and team of mentors provides care, guidance, and stability for each of our girls. Most group homes put emphasis on providing a bed and shelter; our focus is on creating a family.

Opportunity also sets Davidson Farms apart. Our girls are learning to swim and drive. They play sports and volunteer. They enjoy typical teenage activities that are absent in other foster care group placements.

Davidson Farms received its licensure from the state of Alabama in August 2017. While we are licensed by the state, we do not accept state or federal funding. Private donations allow us to meet the girls’ needs.

The Farm is named in honor of Dr. Dorothy Davidson, whose generous gift allowed Kids to Love to purchase the property.  Dr. Davidson, in turn, celebrated Lee Marshall’s unmatched commitment to foster children and named the main house “The Lee Marshall House.”

In September 2020 we celebrated our next growth at Davidson Farms, our Cottage Community.

In September 2020 we celebrated our next growth at Davidson Farms, our Cottage Community.

The Cottage Community is the first of its kind to provide housing for foster youth aging out of care.  It is a critical need because statistics show many foster youth are homeless, in prison or dead within two years of aging out of the system.

The Cottage Community will consist of 5 homes. They will be a bridge to independence as the young ladies continue their education or begin a career while remaining under the guidance of the Kids to Love team of mentors.

The Cottage Community is made possible through many partnerships.

A Granddaughter honors her Grandmother's Memory in an Impactful Way at Davidson Farms. 

Sandra Skvorz was a champion of Davidson Farms when serving our girls was still just a vision. She found the perfect way to help our girls and honor her grandmother. Her grandmother, Jane M. Timperley,  had an adventurous and bold spirit.  Throughout her life, she had a heart for educating and helping young ladies. Her philanthropic nature has been passed on to Sandra. Find out what Sandra did to honor her grandmother and to carry the torch of helping young women have a brighter future.  

Parents Honor Daughter's Memory with Book Drive for Davidson Farms

The parents of Caitlyn Wiggins, an Auburn graduate who died tragically in a car accident, are creating a legacy for their daughter and her lifelong love of reading.

In Caitlyn's memory they collected more than 1,000 books for the library at Davidson Farms. Theirs is a touching story, that just might inspire you to honor someone you love in the name of making life better for others.

Our Service is Full Circle

My birth mom was 16 years old when she made two of the most important decisions of my life. The first was to give me life and the second was to give me a chance at a better life through adoption. She spent her pregnancy at the Tennessee Baptist Children's Home in Memphis, Tennessee. When God first  put the house in our path, I prayed. When God led us to the house literally, I prayed. He has clearly laid out the path for this house. Because He rescued me He has called me to rescue others. He is the vine, I'm just one of the many branches. To raise a child, it takes a community. I need your help to make Davidson Farms the reality of refuge, rescue & restoration for every girl we have the opportunity to bring home.
