Our mission "To give aid and encouragement in promoting the education and well-being of at-risk children in the state of Georgia."
The Circle for Children has given aid and encouragement to disadvantaged children in Georgia for almost 100 years. We are a 100% volunteer organization with a rich tradition of giving. Your support changes the future for many youth-serving organizations.
The Circle evokes many images — but always one that is never-ending, never broken. There are Circles of Life, Circles of Love, Circles of Friendship, Circles of Influence, and Circles of Protection. We are all of these. Not only do we perform activities for the charity, but we get to know each other and to connect as long-lasting friends.
Whether a new member or one that has been in the Circle for 40 years, together we are a force of creativity, love, compassion, energy and support. The love of children and the hope that children in Georgia can live a life free from violence, hunger, fear, intimidation, loneliness and lack of love and caring is what makes our Circle strong and successful.
Our roots go back to Tallulah Falls School when we were formed in 1927 as the Young Matrons Circle for Tallulah Falls School to help local needy children with their education. We are still meeting the needs of Georgia’s children through our current beneficiary City of Refuge and through our scholarship program.
