Devereux Georgia Highlights

Circle for ChildrenThe Circle for Children

Over the past year we have received incredible support from The Circle for Children, the oldest women’s charitable organization that benefits Georgia’s children. The women of the Circle have supported our clients through monthly yoga classes, serving holiday meals, and donating new plants for our gardens. The support continued as they presented a donation of $14,500 to our organization at their most recent general meeting!

Captain Devereux & Hope Breaks Through

In preparation for the 2019 M2R Trailfest, hosted by the Marietta Arts Council, Devereux clients created “Captain Devereux” and panels of mixed media artwork titled “Hope Breaks Through.” Captain Devereux and the panels are both collaborative pieces of artwork created by our clients, and represent all of the challenges they have worked to overcome. Some of the struggles sighted were depression, relationships, and self-esteem. Captain Devereux represent the client’s inner self and the hope they have for the future. We want to extend a huge thank you to Advisory Board Member, Cec Dunn, Advisory Board Member Donna Kruger and staff members Dolly Fehd, Dawn Simpson, and Sharmathy Selwin for working tirelessly with our clients to create and display this work of art.

Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors

For the past three years, Devereux Georgia has been the beneficiary of the Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors annual Spring Fling. Over the years, their contribution has directly impacted our clients and helped us to increase our capacity to serve. It is because of partners in the community like ACBR that we can continue to serve the community the way we do.

Volunteer Highlights

Johnson Ferry Baptist Church

Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, Ebenezer class, continued their tradition of volunteering and sprucing up our campus through the church’s “Share the Blessing” community service day. The volunteers, along with our adolescent boys, potted and planted flowers and assisted with binding books in the media center. This is the fifth year Johnson Ferry Baptist Church has volunteered on our campus. We appreciate their dedication to service and look forward to next year.
