The  Russell Home was the first non-profit institution in the country for  brain-damaged children. 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 physical home consists of a nursery, dormitory wing, playrooms, living  room areas, kitchen and large laundry room. The nursery, done up in bright  colors with many posters and stuffed animals, is cheerful for the children.  However, if your are ever fortunate enough to visit, bring plenty of tissue  as you will find before the end of your visit you will not have a dry eye.  The love that is in this home, expressed through the eyes, sounds, and smiles  from the children will make you count your blessings for the simple things in  life.
   The Russell Home is also a proud member of the Florida Association of  Christian Child Caring Agencies.
