Was started in 1967 and is the oldest service club in Fayette County. With more than 100 members, Rotarian’s demonstrate the Rotary motto of “service above self” through a variety of activities supporting our community such as volunteer hands-on projects, education and grant support for partner nonprofits meeting the everyday needs of those who suffer from cancer, hunger, violence, and everyday struggles of life!
The Center’s mission is to “provide necessities for living while equipping people for life”. Support from the festival will directly affect those in need through a Financial Assistance Program. This program provides for basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, or utility assistance. Helping individuals through a crisis, along with a plan of action promotes stability and then opens the door for investing for long-term change. The Center invests in individuals and families for a year to develop action plans, accountability and encouragement for long-term change.
The Project’s philosophy is to create a holistic, multi-disciplinary support network in each community to facilitate reintegration for warriors and their families. While there are many programs designed to provide career guidance and job placement to veterans, there are no programs currently addressing the fundamental issues of reintegration or career retention. Our focus is on these two areas and include; support groups for service members and families, therapy in a “safe” environment, to support the facilitation of re-connection, communication and reintegration in a conflict-free zone and workforce development. Services are available to 23,000 veterans in Fayette and Coweta Counties.
