Committees work with the staff and Board of Directors to form strategic goals for the organization and provide program enhancement, both in vision and through hands-on involvement with volunteers and family partners. Working on a committee is a great way to put your skills to use or to learn something new!  Call 770-270-6813 or email Bob Boyd, Executive Director for more information.
