At a time when many children are not fortunate enough to live in stable, loving homes, the Georgia Sheriff’s Association has found away to help tackle this problem.
According to Sheriff Cecil Nobles, the GSA has been instrumental in establishing youth homes throughout the state and, as of today, the group has opened five in Georgia.
Nobles said these homes are located from the lowest part of the state to the highest tip, and they cater to the needs of boys and girls.
“I have always been a big supporter of these homes and the [Georgia] Sheriff’s Association, and I urge others to do all that they can to help us support them,” Nobles said.
According to the sheriff, the homes provide plenty of necessities and many things that make childhood special, such as birthday and holiday gifts.
Nobles said currently, the youth homes care for more than 200 kids through camps, residential facilities and other programs in places like Hahira, Dalton, Nunez and LaGrange.
According to the Long County sheriff, the GSA does all it can do to help with this mission, but he says that there’s still much to be done.
