Two Sparrows Village at Christian City Hosts Ribbon Cutting and Day of Service February 26
Wednesday, February 16th, 2022
Christian City and Two Sparrows Village will unveil a new housing model for neuro-diverse adults at a ribbon cutting on the Christian City campus at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 26, 2022. Tours to view one of the new apartments will be available until 12:30pm.
Two Sparrows Village at Christian City is an inclusive neuro-diverse co-housing option for adults with intellectual disabilities and autism to live in community with others. The fully renovated cottage with four suites is located on the 500-acre campus of Christian City in south metro Atlanta at 7345 Red Oak Road, Union City, GA.
The day of service is a time for visitors to come out and explore the new cottage and to celebrate the beginning of this new home by showering the residents with much needed items for the pantry, laundry room, and additional household supplies. The public is invited to get involved in supporting the program by visiting: https://twosparrowsvillage.networkforgood.com/events/39232-ribbon-cutting-day-of-service or registries at Target.com and Amazon.com.
The John and Polly Sparks Foundation provided major funding to allow Christian City to transform what was originally built in 1965 as a home for children into a modern home for neuro-diverse adults to live in independence. A community of donors and volunteers came together to achieve the completion of the project and to allow Christian City to gift it to Two Sparrows Village.
“We want to use this as a blueprint and multiply this model with partners,” comments Two Sparrows Executive Director Jacquelyn Thornton. “Our mission is to provide equity and inclusion to our residents and allow them to be the best version of themselves and not simply identified as having an intellectual impairment. Our residents hold special talents and skills, one example is art, and the ability for them to cultivate and share their gift is a privilege all human beings should experience.”
