Stories From Around A Better World

A Better World has partnered with Jim Noble to provide 200 meals per day to our community. We are holding a daily drive-thru at Christ Resurrection Church and have been delivering food, toiletries and essentials to our families that can’t make it over to the drive-thru. Click Donate to join us in serving our community in these trying times!

Thank you to all of the volunteers, sponsors, parents and staff members that worked so hard to grant the Christmas Wish Lists of over 90 A Better World students and kids from Christ Resurrection Church! Click here to see more pictures from the Christmas Party! A VERY special thank you to Sonic Automotive, Wells Fargo and the New Leaf Foundation for sponsoring students to ensure that we could donate over 450 gifts!


Thank you to EVERYBODY who donated, volunteered and worked to make this summer trip the biggest yet! We were able to take 38 kids to an Atlanta Braves game, the Georgia Aquarium, the Martin Luther King museum, and more! Our kids will certainly have some stories to tell when they return to school in a couple weeks.
