Notice

Due to COVID-19, LaAmistad has decided to suspend all in person programming until further notice effective immediately. We feel this hiatus is in the best interest of our community at this time, and look forward to welcoming back our students, families, and volunteers as soon as possible.

Thank you!

Covid-19 Relief for LaAmistad Families

Amid Coronavirus, families need our support more than ever. Few have taken this more to heart than our own Rohan Datta, a frequent volunteer in LaAmistad Afterschool:

“When I started volunteering with LaAmistad, I enjoyed connecting with the children, and through their stories, I became aware of the needs and difficulties faced by their community. When the COVID-19 pandemic caused nearly all businesses to close, I realized that many of the children that I knew may be struggling financially. I really wanted to do something urgently to help the children and their families in these difficult times until life can get back to normal. I believe it is so important to fundraise for these families to help them with their needs."

Join Us In Support

 

LaAmistad would like to take a moment to thank its incredible church partners. In recent weeks, the students and families that LaAmistad serves have faced an unprecedented set of challenges. Parent Liaisons sprung into action, performing needs assessments for resources like groceries and internet access. With schools closed, employment questions, and bills coming, many families were in need of additional support.

It is such a blessing to know that LaAmistad's community is one that binds tighter in times of need. From collecting gift card donations, to coordinating grocery pickups, to supporting online learning initiatives, our church partners have stepped up for our community in so many inspiring ways. Please, see below for more information on our church partners and their efforts.

Special Thanks to: Peachtree Church, The Cathedral of St. Philip, Trinity Anglican Church, Shallowford Presbyterian Church, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Clairmont Presbyterian Church, Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Connection Pointe Church of God, Embry Hills United Methodist Church, Metro City Church
