Living Water Learning Resource Center is proud to announce its Grand Opening, Tuesday, March 26th, 2013 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30am at the John C. Birdine Neighborhood Center, 215 Lakewood Way, Suite 108, Atlanta, Georgia 30315.

Living Water Learning Resource Center is a gender-specific, non-residential training program for girls and young women ages 16-26 who have survived violence, street life, prostitution and human sex trafficking. Living Water Learning Resource Center is a program of Circle of Friends: Celebrating Life, Inc. a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization whose mission is to serve, empower and equip women and youth to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

The Resource Center will offer:

  • GED courses
  • College education classes and a premiere Vision Tech Vocational training Program
  • Paid and Unpaid Internships
  • Counseling and Therapeutic services
  • Case Management
  • Life skills Training
  • Mentorship Program
  • Childcare connections
  • Community Service Opportunities


At the Learning Resource Center we believe:
…every girl and young woman has the capacity to create life goals and achieve academic success.
…when given the proper tools, girls and young women can ultimately provide for themselves and become self-sufficient.
…“access” is the necessary key to success and with it girls and young women can open doors that in times past were not only closed, but “locked”.
…education will not only change their lives, but will change the lives of their families for generations to come.
During this landmark event, the organization’s Founder and Executive Director, Lisa Williams will pay special tribute to the Mayor of Atlanta for his role in helping to secure the space the Learning Resource Center now occupy, as well as Presidents of local area colleges for their partnership, supporters, foundations and volunteers.
