The Russell Home for Atypical Children, Inc. is very excited and honored to be Visit Orlando's Magical Dining Month presented by American Express charity partner! We appreciate both Visit Orlando and the many charitable restaurants participating in this year's Magical Dining Month. The Russell Home is thrilled with this opportunity to introduce The Russell Home to so many and to generate donations for the operations of the home!
The Russell Home provides a home atmosphere with a family structure for special needs children and 'child-like' adults. The home also provides 24 hours’ free respite care and free day care for the families in our community with special needs dependents.
The Russell Home was established in 1947 by Vantrease Russell (Grandma Russell), she worked her entire life to provide a home and assistance to families with special needs children. In her lifetime she never received a paycheck or asked for payment for her service. We, as the third generation, continue her mission completely supported by the Central Florida Community. The Russell Home has never received funds from local, state or federal governments, for 67 years the community has supported the home!
