Griffith Engineering, Inc. proudly sponsored the Real Life Center’s “Harvest for Hope” gala. Established in 1998, the Real Life Center has become one of the most highly respected and recognized non-profit organizations in the south metro Atlanta area. The Center’s mission is to “walk with those who are hurting in Fayette and Coweta counties by providing a safe environment, sharing the love of Christ, and promoting long term change. This mission is accomplished through an innovative process of holistic care. This strategy includes caring for each person physically, emotionally, relationally, financially, mentally, and spiritually.” The Center offers a one year program designed to help families get back on their feet and to encourage them to set goals that will help promote lasting change.
Two of the core values upon which Griffith Engineering was founded are to value our clients and to be a corporate citizen that is actively involved – both financially and physically – in engaging the communities in which we work. Like the Real Life Center, Griffith Engineering cares about our communities as well as the buildings that impact them and the occupants that live, work, and learn in those buildings. Griffith Engineering is proud to support the Real Life Center in its mission to aid citizens in need in Fayette and Coweta counties.
Bart Stewart, PE, CEM, and a principal in Griffith Engineering’s Atlanta office, is a resident of Peachtree City and Fayette County. Bart was instrumental in selecting the Real Life Center as one of the charities that Griffith Engineering chose to support this year. When asked why he selected the center, Bart said “I love our community and how there are so many organizations here that serve those in need. I selected the Real Life Center because of how the organization interfaces with those that it serves. Their approach to helping people and families get back on their feet – beyond just feeding and housing them – is an amazing ministry. It’s more than a handout, it’s an investment in people and our community.”
