We believe in community. And we recognize that building a better community is a priority both here in the metro Atlanta area, and around the world. As an organization, one of our guiding principles is to give back to both the communities that support us and those in need, to lend a helping hand to others less fortunate and to make the world better than we found it.
We embraced the following charities with company-wide time, talent and monetary support, 2009 – 2014:
Second Wind Dreams
Since 1997, SWD has become involved in more than 400 eldercare communities in 40 states, and Canada. Weaving thousands of dreams from the simple to the sublime. The mission of Second Wind Dreams® (SWD) is simple — to change the perception of aging through the fulfillment of dreams and the offering of innovative educational opportunities to caregivers and communities.
Second Wind Dreams® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation governed by a Board of Directors that provides the guidance and support necessary to continue its mission and expand its impact. Financial support for Second Wind Dreams® comes from individual contributions, memberships, corporations and eldercare industry associations. Additional revenue is generated as a result of SWD’s educational program, the Virtual Dementia Tour®. The Virtual Dementia Tour is a scientifically proven method designed to increase sensitivity toward those with dementia. The Second Wind Dreams® program is delivered primarily through volunteer efforts, with key program components handled by three full time employees.
Senior Services North Fulton
As the senior population grows, and seniors choose to stay in their homes for as long as possible, the need for access to social programs and activities, nutritious meals and transportation will also grow. Senior Services North Fulton can help seniors and their families and our growth over the years reflects this.
Providence Training Center
The Providence training center is a faith based organization that trains underprivileged men and women so they can transform their local communities with sound ethical principles for living, servant leadership, micro-enterprise, health promotion, HIV awareness and training, clean water, family enrichment and reconciliation. In a country plagued with poverty, HIV and tribal distrust these pastors and lay people are being trained to offer a global peace initiative by sharing their faith and God’s purpose for their lives in a manner that helps break down barriers of cultural tension and transforms lives. None of the current scholarship students has either the education or money to afford training. Our goal at the center is to develop a self-sustaining ministry that will provide a hand up for this developing country to improve the citizens of the communities they serve. We partner in this effort with Roswell United Methodist Church and the National Christian Foundation.
Mission Trips of staff and local health, micro-enterprise, reconciliation counseling, clean water and education volunteers are organized yearly. For more information go to our website.
Beauty Becomes You
Beauty Becomes You Foundation (BBYF) is a nonprofit aesthetic health initiative that embraces a holistic approach to addressing senior hygiene needs. The services provided by Beauty Becomes You™ range from hair and skin cleansing to more therapeutic interventions such as foot care for Diabetics. BBYF also provides clinicians with expert training in Geriatric Aesthetic™ health and wellbeing while engaging these professionals in a volunteer capacity.
Often seniors have skin, hair and nail concerns which are easily compromised through denial of their presence and can be exacerbated by medical conditions and lack of proper care. Beauty Becomes You Foundation offers a variety of basic hygiene programs to the senior community that will ensure their health and wellbeing.
