Lifestyle Learning Center

Our Lifestyle Learning Center is a place to provide hope for ‘at-risk’ individuals in our Greater Atlanta regional community who are ready to commit to long term life change.

Our holistic continuum of education and care focuses on the five domains of life: physical, emotional, financial, spiritual and relationships. Our 501© entity was formed out of the quest to deliver a more permanent – even transformational – solution within our traditional social services networks for those struggling domestic violence victims who are able and willing to seek a life of sustainability with dignity.

Our goal is not to reinvent the wheel but instead provide a collaboration of programs that focus on helping individuals that are motivated to begin Thriving in life. Some of the programs we will be collaborating with are:

R.A.D. Women’s Self Defense

“The mission of the R.A.D. Systems is to establish an accessible, constantly improving and internationally respected alliance of dedicated Instructors. These Instructors in turn, will provide educational opportunities for women, children, men and seniors to create a safer future for themselves. In doing this, we challenge society to evolve into an existence where violence is not an acceptable part of daily life.”
