Children’s Harbor continues to serve its mission by extending specific services, activities and programs—at no cost to the families we serve—at both the Lake Martin Campus and The Harbor Family Center located in Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham.
When a child receives a serious or chronic diagnosis, it impacts the entire family unit. Parents and guardians are often thrust into a healthcare cycle of juggling hospital stays, doctor’s appointments, medication schedules, and an overwhelming amount of new information that is vital for the health and well-being of their child. These families must quickly adapt while caring for other family members in their home, balancing careers, managing financial responsibilities, and dealing with their own emotional and physical needs.
The Harbor provides the unique, specific care these families need during their stay in the hospital, including counseling, educational services and respite services such as nap rooms, a library, game room and more.
We also partner with amazing organizations to host camps at our Lake Martin campus. In addition to camps, we offer Harbor Holiday Family Retreats to give families the opportunity to spend quality time together outside of the hospital setting. For more information visit
