Alabama Supreme Court rules in favor of Kids to Love

10/19/2023

MADISON, Ala. – The Kids to Love Foundation has won a significant battle in its ongoing case against the Alabama Department of Human Resources to keep our children in safe and loving homes. 

Kids to Love’s legal team held a news conference today to discuss a ruling by the Alabama Supreme Court in which DHR disputed whether the judge involved in the case was operating outside of her jurisdiction. The high court denied their petition.

You can watch the news conference in its entirety below.

Kids to Love’s Attorney Patrick Hill called the ruling an amazing win for Kids to Love.

“DHR tried to dismiss their writ without prejudice and with the ability to bring it back up,” said Hill. “But the Supreme Court didn’t accept it and made a binding ruling denying their Petition so that no children can be moved out of Kids to Love’s current foster homes. I think they were sending a message to DHR.”

This means Kids to Love’s legal case against DHR now heads back to the local circuit court in Madison County where it started, with the goal of having DHR lift their referral freeze of Kids to Love foster homes so more children across the state can have access to loving, licensed families. Kids to Love is a licensed child placing agency. A recent audit of Kids to Love by DHR showed up zero deficiencies. 

You can join Kids to Love’s call for accountability by signing our Change.org petition, which calls on Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey and DHR Commissioner Nancy Buckner to #OpenOurHomes for children in foster care.
