Homeaid Atlanta
On June 14, nearly 70 GAHBA members volunteered with HomeAid Atlanta for a Care Day at 4Sarah, a Conyers nonprofit organization with a mission to empower change in the lives of women and girls escaping the sex industry. Volunteers completed a huge scope of work at 4Sarah’s Assessment House to help make it feel more like home for the residents. The Care Day provided a savings of approximately $25,000 in facility maintenance, which allows 4Sarah to focus more funds on empowering women and girls to leave the sex industry through outreach and intervention programs, as well as educational, emotional, physical, and spiritual support. Thank you GAHBA for your support of HomeAid’s mission!
