One of our favorite books and movies of all times is "The Wizard Oz." We can close our eyes and imagine Light House Village as Emerald City shining a true light of hope.
The latest pillar to break ground at the village will be Phoenix Pass, a holistic and transitional support service program for displaced families.
The credit for this project goes to the folks at First Baptist Church of Conyers and Rockdale County Emergency Relief.
This project has not only caught the attention of local businesses and non-profits, it's also receiving support from groups across the state and nation.
It's a positive step when an effort is made to help people to the point that they can help themselves and turn out to become productive and giving members of the community that supported them.
The ground breaking for Phoenix Pass was July 9. Civic groups and interested people are invited to "adopt" an apartment and help furnish and provide other essentials for Phoenix Pass, said FBC Pastor and President of Phoenix Pass Howard Greer.
He welcomes your calls at 770-483-8700 or e-mails at firstname.lastname@example.org either to learn more about the project or to donate items.
