Refugee Ministries is very excited that thanks to the inspiration of All Saints' parishioner, Buck Winfield, we will be beginning a brand new partnership with YMCA Atlanta to provide swimming lessons to refugee children at the Wade Walker Pool located at 5605 Rockbridge Rd SW, Stone Mountain, GA 30088. This is a very important program to learn water safety as over the years children have drowned in Clarkston in apartment pools. These swim lessons will also provide trauma diminishment and the experience of welcome in all parts of the city. The average distance between participants' homes and the pool is 5 miles. Baby seats will be provided if needed. We will begin a class for PreK students and one for elementary age students on Saturday Feb 23rd at 10:30 that will run for 8 weeks. After that, we plan to have many more! If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Louisa at [email protected].
