Our Graduate Resources and Continuing Education Program, G.R.A.C.E., is designed for families who have left our housing programs. This effort is designed to continue to grow family life skills. We are grateful to have volunteers and congregations who provide child care and space to meet and a grant from the East Cobb Rotary to help with additional support.
This year started in person with speaker, Ivy Grant, VP of Customer Care with Walmart. Ivy helped our graduates work on identifying their “hard” and “soft" skills in order to develop a personal statement that they could share as a 30 second elevator speech.
As we switched to virtual meetings, we were fortunate to have Amber Davis, an Educator as a speaker. Amber provided tips and resources for our parents navigating their children's virtual learning.
Our most recent speaker was Christine Triebsch, member of East Cobb Rotary and local family law attorney. Chris had our graduates fully engaged and was dubbed 'best speaker of the year'!
