The Mission

We invite you to join us for a celebratory evening at our new location, The Stave Room, with a fabulous raffle opportunity (of which only 2,000 tickets will be sold!), an exciting live auction, and a delicious dinner from former  White House Chef, John Moeller , which will be served by our own Families First youth. Throughout the night, guests will be drawn into inspiring client reflections and testimonies that highlight our new Success at 25 mission. With your support, we will strengthen programs and services focused on providing children and youth with stable housing, health and wellness services, academic support, and mentoring.

We look forward to celebrating 20 years of ensuring the success of children and families in Georgia, while showcasing new initiatives and strategies that will set youth on a pathway to independence and success. There are several exciting ways that you can support the 20th Annual Dining for a Difference to help us create pathways toward success for thousands of young people in Georgia.
