Thanks for your support!
Thank you for your Support Picture 2September and October were busy fundraising months for us and we want to thank you for your support! September 25th we participated in Whole Foods 5% Day where we saw many friendly faces shopping in order for CCYA to receive 5% of the total sales that day. We passed out fresh rosemary from our community garden and were able to meet some new friends along the course of the day.
September 28th we had a 1st annual “Cruising for a Chance” Poker Run Fundraiser. The ride started at Earl Smalls Harley Davidson and continued on to Freedom Power Sports, Hooters Cartersville, Kotic Kustoms, and ended at The 120 Tavern & Music Hall in Marietta. The weather was perfect for a ride, as well as listening to the great sounds of The FLH Band outside
on the deck of The 120 Tavern. Thank you to all of our volunteers, riders and sponsors!
October 5th we brought the Berenstain Bears Live from New York City. They performed “Family Matters”, the musical at The Strand Theater in the Marietta Square. This live musical production was filled with fun songs and dancing while teaching some important life lessons. All proceeds went to The Center for Children & Young Adults. Thank you to all the families that purchased tickets.

Ways to help at the HolidaysWays to help at the Holidays Picture

The holiday’s are fast approaching and here at The Center for Children & Young Adults we begin to think about ways to make the weeks leading up to Christmas all the way through the new year special. Our kids are ages 13-21 and we are currently serving 35-39 boys and girls so we need your help in making this a year to remember. Here are some ways you and your friends, family or co-workers can get involved.
Midnight Santa Program: This was a huge success last year! During the holiday break from school we are looking for volunteer groups and families to surprise our kids each night with a late-night snack.  Items such as doughnuts, cookies, popcorn, etc… We provide the Santa hats and you provide the treat! Our kids had a blast last year waiting with anticipation each night wondering what type of treat would be delivered.  For more information please contact Kimberly Tinsley at 770-485-1627 or

Santa’s Workshop: We are looking for volunteer groups to work a shift in our Santa’s Workshop. This is where the magic begins. Santa’s Workshop is where we sort and wrap all the presents for our youth living at The Center. Shifts are 10 am-12 noon and 2-4 pm beginning December 18th through December 23rd To reserve your time slot,  please contact Andrea Brantley at 770-485-1639 or

Sponsor a Child: The youth at CCYA have wishes for Christmas just like the children in your family. If you would like to shop from their personalized list, please contact Andrea Brantley at 770-485-1639 or
