Bringing light, hope and transformation to Atlanta
Сhanging lives is not a task that any of us can accomplish on our own, or through the efforts of one particular agency. Changing lives is only possible when a community comes together with a common goal and a willingness to join hearts, hands and resources.
That community must include the group that’s “on the ground”, volunteers, strategists, and funders, along with government officials and agencies. Here at City of Refuge, we are convinced that true change only comes through Collective Impact.
We are proud that our community, including all the groups listed above, has elected to come together in powerful ways with the desire to see, not only greater impact in lives changed, but that the community in which we are located is changed as well.
The stage for this radical change has been established over the past 20 years and 2017 promises to highlight the powerful, impactful results of that sought after change as well as lay the foundation for even greater change. We at City of Refuge are grateful for your participation on our journey to change and look forward to many more years of change; one life and one community at a time.
