Most high school students get to attend prom at least once in their lives. They spend weeks planning what they’ll wear, where they’ll have dinner, and what kind of flowers to buy. They get all dressed up in gowns and tuxedos and, years later, they can look back on that night and reminisce, hopefully about all the fun they had together.
For many of our individuals, prom was never a reality. But, now, GCRC is proud to host an annual prom so everyone can have the opportunity to feel beautiful (or handsome) and celebrate a night of fun and laughter, food and dancing! This Saturday, May 17th, we’ll be hosting our annual GCRC prom and our theme is “The Time of Your Life”. We had a wonderful time last year and the votes are being tallied for Homecoming Queen and King as I’m typing these words. We’re also excited that we’ll be announcing awards for every individual from GCRC! We invite you to come join us as we celebrate one another and the progress we’ve made as an agency this year.
Tickets are just $8.50 per person and will go towards your dinner (which is sure to be delicious!). Doors open at 5 p.m. and close at 9 p.m. For more information, please call our office at 706-629-2987.
We hope to see you there!

Today, it is our privilege to introduce you to our fearless leader, Mary West Barclay, and hear a few words from her on what The George Chambers Resource Center is all about…and why our work is so vital for our communities:
Welcome! At GCRC, we are proud of our shared philosophy in individualization of our services. We want to know who you are, where you’ve been, and where you want to go, and provide any service that will ensure your success. We believe that our reason for being is not complete until we advocate, educate, and provide integrated opportunities, not only for individuals in services, but for members of our community, as well. Our agency is a reflection of this belief and we are proud of the steps we have taken to provide an organization that is welcoming and provides a multitude of services that can be coordinated to meet each individual request.
Now that our new website has launched, and the blog is up and running, we’ve seen an incredible response from the community. We’ve begun receiving emails regarding our ability to provide services to additional individuals and we want to thank you all for taking the time to visit and learn more about us. Please know that a site visit from any individuals interested in our services, or families inquiring about future services, for their sons/daughters, are always possible. No appointment is necessary. Drop by anytime! We would love to meet you.
