FROM THE ASHES –
Since our Home was completely destroyed by fire on November 26th of last year, we have worked tirelessly to rise from the ashes. Recovering is never easy, but we did it, and we are so very grateful for the organizations, individuals and agencies who stepped in to help us in our time of need. We could never thank everyone enough but from the bottom or our hearts, we are forever grateful. Because of the support we received, The Open Arms Home for Children continues to provide critical services to the north Georgia community, including “best in class” watchful oversight, care, love and support for young girls affected by abuse and neglect.
As you can imagine, the past five months have been quite challenging but we we addressed these challenges head-on and we have made significant enhancements to our Board of Directors and staff. While we are still working with an interim Director, we have been encouraged with the quality of resumes we have reviewed recently and we are hopeful we will have a new Executive Director in the near future.
We are so very thankful for all who have supported The Open Arms Home for Children, past and present, and we ask that you continue to support and pray for us as we care for our young girls and provide them with a loving Home. We need your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at our fundraising events that will be posted on our site in the very near future.
Peter Knutzen – President/Executive Board
