Behind the Mask
Behind the Mask is a celebration of Mardi Gras, held in LaGrange. Each year in the past, a Royal Court of King & Queen candidates has raised money throughout the community to support the kids served by the LaGrange programs of Twin Cedars. As long as it is safe to do so, we will certainly be ready to let the good times roll!
Safe Families for Children - Yard Signs
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Social connections build family resiliency and help prevent child abuse and neglect! During Child Abuse Prevention Month, communities should rededicate themselves to being supportive of families, and play an active role in preventing child abuse and neglect as well as taking positive action to promote child and family well-being.
To raise awareness and spread the message of protecting children, focusing on positive parenting and keeping kids safe; our program will be selling ‘WE KEEP KIDS SAFE’ yard signs. Yard signs can be picked up from our office located at 701 Lincoln Street, LaGrange on specified pickup days in April— dates to be announced soon on our Facebook page.
Child Abuse Prevention Month
For a child being abused, home isn’t always safe. Abuse can go unnoticed when children are isolated, and Covid-19 has increased that risk.
Vulnerable children need a trusted adult to see them and to speak up. More child victims of abuse need Twin Cedars than ever before.
Can you help a child find healing and a safe home at Twin Cedars?
Chattahoochee CASA - Red Shoe Party
“The Red Shoe Party” is a fundraising event themed around Dorothy’s ruby red slippers in the Wizard of Oz with the slogan, “There’s No Place like Home.” As children are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect, it is CASA’s mission to help them reach permanency in a safe, stable home as quickly as possible.
This event is designed to be a party with a purpose helping to raise money and awareness for Chattahoochee CASA so that our community volunteers have the training and support to continue advocating for our most vulnerable citizens. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, CASA advocacy continues. Now more than ever, CASA volunteers are of utmost importance in addressing immediate needs and bringing urgency to critical concerns.
Thank you so much for making this years Red Shoe Party a success! Please check back for more information for next years event.
Dinner in the Orchard
You are invited to join us in the idyllic southern setting of our Georgia Industrial Children’s Home pecan orchard for a fresh new version of Dinner in the Orchard, our signature benefit event to be held on Saturday, May 8, 2021. This year’s open-air, safely spaced event will be an elegant, garden-casual concert on the grounds, featuring a live performance by the Macon Pop’s 7-Piece Band! Patterned after the charm of a lovely evening picnic concert at Atlanta’s Chastain Park, Dinner in the Orchard will start with cocktail hour & hors d’oeuvres. Next, you may enjoy pairing a fine wine with your gourmet picnic spread, curated by Fountain of Juice. Then, dance the night away under the stars, to the musical stylings of the Macon Pops, playing all our favorite pop songs from across the decades.
Your support ensures that the sixty boys who live at GICH will have a well-maintained home, fun activities, learning experiences and all the support they need to flourish. Thank you for your consideration!
