Mission Statement

The mission of Friendship Community Center is to serve adults living with chronic mental and emotional disorders by empowering them to develop a sense of HOPE and tools to enrich the quality of their lives.


Friendship Community Center (FCC) provides structured scheduled activities that promote socialization, recovery, self-advocacy, development of natural supports, and maintenance of community living skills, under the direct supervision of a mental health professional. FCC conducts daily groups in a safe homelike environment for our members to explore their personal empowering goals and achieve them.

Inputs to our program include but are not limited to the physical facility and plant needs, staff, staff salaries, program materials, transportation, food and volunteer staff. We also provide a thrift shop and small store for members to purchase used items such as clothing and household items reduced cost.

FCC provides one-on-one peer counseling, group activities focused toward mental health recovery. FCC also runs a Ga state certified Peer Support Program. We provide a nourishing hot lunch daily. FCC also assists members in learning the importance of keeping doctor appointments to include learning basic computer skills.

FCC outputs are assisting our members in staying both physically and mentally healthy. We help them attain independent living apartments and employment, thus keeping them off the street and out of jail while providing a sense of accomplishment and self-worth.

Would you recommend Friendship Community Center?

by Crystal S. from Augusta, GA (August 3, 2015)
Serving on the board of directors for Friendship has been a great opportunity to do some good for the community, learn more about how non-profit organizations operate, and gain some experience for the resume (always a plus). It does not require previous board experience or a background in mental health. My own background is in sociology and gerontology but I still feel that I have been useful. It is not a big drain on your schedule, as it only meets once a month. I would recommend this experience. It is definitely worth a look.
