Facts About the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House Bobby Brown founded the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House in 2015. It's named after his late daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, whom he shared with the late Whitney Houston. He co-founded it with his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown. It's a non-profit domestic violence safe-haven for men and women. The organization has partnered with various organizations since it launched. They include non-profits S.H.A.R.E. House and the Brookview House as well as the Atlanta Hawks.

The drive will benefit S.H.A.R.E. House families

Bobby Brown's Bobbi Kristina Serenity House is partnering with restaurateur Shema Fulton for a toy drive to benefit families residing at S.H.A.R.E. House.

Brown and Fulton ask diners who visit Fulton’s eateries, Garden Parc and Baltimore Crab & Seafood, to bring an unwrapped toy or gift card for children up to age 17 with them through Dec. 21. Patrons are invited to place the gifts in Santa’s sleigh, which will be at each location. It’s meant to support the non-profit organization aimed at helping domestic violence victims, homeless mothers and their children.

Along with the toy drive, Garden Park will host a special dinner for moms living at S.H.A.R.E. House. As mothers dine, Mike Jones & Friends jazz quartet will serenade them with holiday tunes from the likes of Kenny G, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Brown. The singer founded the non-profit that supports domestic violence victims with his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, in 2015.

At the end of the evening, mothers will take the donated toys to gift their children on Christmas.

“Christmas is a family time and one when we all want to see smiles on the faces of children,” Brown said in a press release. “We want to thank Shema Fulton for her generosity and sharing her beautiful restaurants, and amazing food, and giving the Moms an incredible evening and an opportunity to know how special they are.”

Our commitment to the community is important, and we want to let them know how much we care. I want to thank Bobby and his family for partnering with us and congratulate them on the work they are doing to give a ‘voice to the voiceless,’” said Fulton.
