In October..

Favor House recently celebrated another success as we had another graduation!

Stuart graduated from our program on October 24th, and we are so proud of him.  Stuart came to us broken and without hope.  Now we are thrilled to have him join our team as our on-site House Manager.  Stuart will be working closely with residents to ensure there are hot meals, doctors appointments and all types of other behind the scenes things it takes to keep Favor House running.  Head on over to www.favorhouseathens.org to read more about Stuart under our staff page!

Rock Eagle Trip

With the help of all of your generous donations and a wonderful sponsorship program offered by The Atlanta Men’s Workshop, all of our residents were able to attend Rock Eagle this year!  They were surrounded by fellowship, food and sober fun for three days.  Thank you for helping us allow our residents this wonderful experience.  This is what one resident had to say about the it ,”God really showed himself to me this weekend. I was brought to a group of young men in recovery from Gainesville, Ga who really took me in. They showed me all that was possible in recovery and we shared a lot of great moments together. One of which we got 28 young men to go to the alter and pray which was very encouraging and spiritual. My favorite was going on a hike to the Rock Eagle where we had 20 minutes of meditation followed by everyone sharing what they got out of the weekend. I left knowing that I had made life-long friends and can’t wait to return to the Rock. I’ve never been so grateful to be sober. This experience for me was a fundamental step on my path to recovery. Thank the Lord!”
