“I am a past resident and student at Brooklawn. I got little help while I was there, but it wasn’t your fault – it was mine. You tried to give me help, but I did not accept it. After many years of rejecting people, I finally accepted my problems, accepted those trying to help and changed my way of thinking and my way of life. I am now a high school graduate and attending Elizabethtown Community and Technical College for nursing and will transfer to the University of Louisville when I complete my two years at ECTC. I just want to say thank you all for all you did for me or tried to do and that I have no doubts you will help others that need help.”

– Q., former resident

For more than 160 years, Bellewood Home for Children and Brooklawn Child & Family Services have worked separately to nurture thousands of Kentucky’s most vulnerable children.
