Long-time VOAGBR Supported Independent Living Program participant Michael Davis wanted to give something back to the community that has supported him for many years. Along with Direct Support Professional Terry Goodman, Michael chose to provide school supplies for area children in need. Thanks for setting a wonderful example for this community, Michael!
Thanks to Assured Flooring, The Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation, The Amorosa Family, the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Volunteers of America’s National Office, and the City and Parish of East Baton Rouge, the kitchen and dining room areas of Atkinson House were completely renovated last summer. VOAGBR would like thank them again, this time for the final phase of home renovations.
VOAGBR is expanding their Partnerships in Child Care resource and referral services to new areas in south Louisiana, thanks to the dedication of longtime program director Janie Starks. Partnerships in Child Care plays an important role in new statewide educational standards, which aim to ensure that all children in Louisiana enter kindergarten ready to learn.
