Scouted Non-Profits You Need to Know

At the heart of every community are those who give selflessly of themselves to serve others, and we are honored to include a handful of the many in our city who do just that. From the nation’s longest running wine auction supporting children’s charities to a homegrown ministry providing spiritual healing, meet the Scouted Birmingham-based non-profits you need to know.



Infertility • @blessedbrokenness Blessed Brokenness is a 501(c)(3) seeking to provide spiritual healing and financial blessings to couples suffering from infertility and loss. At its heart is the small group curriculum, A Blessed Womb, which connected the foundation’s leadership, Ann Adams, Mallory Wear, and Allyson Mouron in 2017. Editor Rebecca Todd scouted the Birmingham-based ministry to honor and promote their powerful work and impact. “If you haven’t struggled with infertility yourself, you know someone who has. As a woman, I’m deeply moved by Blessed Brokenness and how they’ve changed the lives of so many families for the better.” Blessed Brokenness is actively seeking to expand their outreach to include Child Loss, Postpartum Anxiety + Depression, and Men of Fertility.  Learn more about Blessed Brokenness…
