brantwood acjf Lawyers support Brantwood Childrens HomeMONTGOMERY, ALA. (June 17, 2009)  – Brantwood Children’s Home has received a grant in the amount of $7,500 from the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation (ACJF). ACJF is a statewide grantmaking foundation supported by lawyers from across the state. The grant check was presented to the Brantwood Board of Directors on Wednesday, June 17, at the regular board meeting at 11:30 a.m., by Thomas J. Methvin, managing shareholder of Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. Methvin is a participating member of the ACJF and current President of the Brantwood Board of Directors.

The Foundation’s grants are provided for general operating expenses, one of the greatest needs among nonprofit organizations, especially during the current economic crisis. The grants enable organizations to do a more effective job providing social services and legal aid for disadvantaged, disabled and at-risk families and children in Alabama.

“Brantwood has been Montgomery’s children’s home since 1917. Throughout our history, the community – through individuals and groups – has provided financial support to aid in the loving care and supervision of raising children who are in need of a safe, stable home,” said Kim Herbert, Executive Director of Brantwood. “The youth, staff and board of directors of Brantwood are grateful to the ACJF for their support.”

“Montgomery is very fortunate to have a facility like Brantwood,” said Methvin. “And it’s something that’s very special to me. Working with these kids, seeing the difference a place like Brantwood can make in their lives, it’s very rewarding. How could you not want to make their lives better? The Alabama Civil Justice Foundation was created 17 years ago by members of the Alabama Association for Justice, and that same year, the Alabama Supreme Court authorized ACJF as an IOLTA (Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts) program,” he said. “In addition to the IOLTA funds, lawyers and law firms support the foundation through contributions, enabling more than $7.5 million in grants throughout the state. I’m especially pleased that Brantwood and its children could benefit from the Foundation this year.”
