The Out of Darkness safe home is the beneficiary of the 2019 District Competitive Grant secured by the Rotary Club of Brookhaven.

There are two available work days on which Rotarians can help with get this safe home ready: September 14 and September 28. I am including links to both work dates below, along with some of the information from one of those pages for those who would like a summary of the goals, work to be done, etc.

From the Atlanta Dream Center's Out of Darkness project:

We need your help! Come join us for a Work Day at our new safe home property in DeKalb County! We will be tackling a number of projects both inside and outside. You do not need to be a skilled professional, just a willing heart and some elbow grease. With your help, we will be able to open the safe home quickly and double our bed capacity to serve women with safety, love and trauma-informed care!

Lunch and Water will be provided.

Please feel free to come even if you're not able to stay for the whole day.
