The Friendship Center is an inclusive day program and community that promotes the mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing of adults marginalized by mental health challenges and by poverty.
Atlanta needs the Friendship Center because every human being deserves to live a life of dignity. Every human being needs not only food and shelter but also community and purpose.
Adults marginalized by poverty and mental illness are an often neglected and unseen population. The majority of Friendship Center participants live in personal care homes. Proper treatment, which is essential, is often out of reach because it is too expensive and treatment systems are often difficult to navigate. Our society often denies the dignity, gifts, and talents of people who are different. Every human being needs a community and a purpose, and the Friendship Center provides a community and a purpose. The Friendship Center is an inclusive community where all people accept and support one another in their well-being and recovery. We acknowledge the inherent value of each person.
