Join us for food, drinks and fun on Sunday, May 3rd!

We will be hosting a BINGO tournament with many awesome prizes up for grabs! All proceeds will be donated to The Russell Home for Atypical Children located right here in Orlando!

The Russell Home was the first non-profit institution in the United States for brain-damaged children. It is currently one of the few group homes in the country that doesn’t accept any government assistance, they are run solely off of donations! Today you would find quietly hanging in the home a dusty occupational license dated Nov. 13, 1951, when Mrs. Russell opened her home to the first child to "see if it would work out." Since then, the home has opened its doors to hundreds of youngsters, sometimes after hearing pleas from desperate parents, and in more than one instance, finding them just left on the doorstep. The Russell Home for Atypical Children is "Home" for a number of children whose handicap prevents their independent functioning in the community, and otherwise enjoying a normal life. The Russell Home provides around the clock specialized care, with love and a home-like atmosphere so vital to their special needs. Having accepted many of these children into her home in their infancy, Mrs. Russell was the only mother they recognized and The Russell Home the only home they have ever known. Some of the children's parents are deceased, some have been deserted by their parents - whereabouts, unknown. These children especially, need the daily care and love that Mrs. Russell so freely gave them. Her attitude is shared by the rest of the staff that have so faithfully carried on her dream.
