We will be liquidating the estate of  the late Charlie Brown and the late Dr. Loreta Holder- Brown.  

After a life threatening bout with Polio at the age of 4, and subsequent loss of the use of her left arm inspired in Loreta a lifelong commitment to improving the lives of children with disabilities. At the age of only 16 she was awarded a teachers certificate and begin teaching elementary school in Springfield Public School. She went on to attend Arkansas State Teachers College (Now UCA) in Conway, Arkansas earning her Bachelors Degree in Education, then her Masters Degree in Special Education from George Peabody College in Memphis, Tennessee, and finally her Doctorate of Education Psychology from Southern Illinois University, and became Professor Emerita of Special  Education at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 1973.  In 1975 she met her lifelong partner and future husband, Charlie Brown, and together they built a life benefiting countless children, as well as the communities in which they lived.  

Recognizing the importance of early intervention, in 1974 Dr. Holder-Brown founded the Innovative RISE Center at the University of Alabama, one of only a handful of experimental programs to win federal grant moneys to provide crucial therapies to special needs infants and support services to their families.  RISE has since grown to seven facilities based in major U.S. cities in four states and provides hundreds of children with vital services yearly. Enabling them to flourish and enabling them to enter classrooms all over the U.S.  Dr. Holder-Brown changed dozens of lives through her doctoral program, and hundreds more through her tiny infant day-school program started in a basement, conceived and directed by her, and funded by grants that she wrote!   In 1993, after her retirement from University of Alabama, she returned to her Alma Mater, Now UCA, where she taught early childhood development and special education.  

As Dr. Holder-Brown was considering a second retirement she and Charlie Brown founded Mission HELP as an outreach support program for orphanages and neonatal intensive care unit and established and funded programs to train childcare providers to treat physically disabled children in Honduras.  

RISE Schools of Tuscaloosa, Austin, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Huntsville and Stillwater and Mission HELP of Honduras (now a part of the Friends of Barnabas outreach) stand as a testament to the heart of Dr. Holder-Brown had for children and the tenacity with which she pursued her vision.
