I started Faith Open Door in 2009 to provide a safe place for the youth of Clayton County to identify and pursue their dreams.
Help one another. There’s no time like the present, and no present like the time.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. –Anne Frank
