Established in 1924, our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where severely abused and neglected children and teenagers from metro Atlanta and across Georgia can thrive and heal toward a goal of re-engaging with society and leading productive lives.
Core programs include residential care, transitional living, specialized foster care, and community services for children and families.
Residential services are offered on a 160-acre campus and support children ages 12 and older needing intensive treatment due to abuse and neglect. Children receive room and board, clinical and recreation therapy, education, medication management, case management, nursing care, social skills training, and can participate in a GED and/or work program.
Specialized foster care provides family placements with high-level clinical support for children removed from parental custody due to abuse and neglect. Placements are often a step-down from residential care, allowing residents to reintegrate into the community.
Since 1961, Atlanta magazine, the city’s premier general interest publication, has served as the authority on Atlanta, providing its readers with a mix of long-form nonfiction, lively lifestyle coverage, in-depth service journalism, and literary essays, columns, and profiles.
