This past Friday Co-Principal Dana Brown had the opportunity to serve at the Atlanta Mission. Watch video below.
“The Atlanta Mission has been called by God to serve the city of Atlanta. Since its 1938 beginnings, this Christian nonprofit ministry has grown from a small soup kitchen to a multi-facility organization serving Metro Atlanta’s large homeless population. Today, Atlanta Mission provides emergency shelter, rehab and recovery services, vocational training, services, and transitional housing. We serve more than 1,000 homeless men, women, and children every day.”

I set and meet challenging goals. I hold high expectations for myself and my future. I never give up.
I believe in myself and my potential. Others do not define me.
I respect and value people’s diverse identities. I am curious about other people. I learn from others.
We will communicate by newsletter with you each week. It will be distributed at the beginning of each school week. The purpose of the newsletter is to inform Dearborn STEM Academy students, staff, and families as well as the greater Dearborn community.
