A Message from our Founder
Norma Joy Barnes
"Helping others to live better lives" is the motto of the Community Council of Metropolitan Atlanta, Inc. These words are more than an ambitious motto. They represent the actualization of a vision to serve the disadvantaged and the disenfranchised, with particular focus on at-risk youth and young minority males.
After seven years of service to the metropolitan Atlanta and surrounding communities, the CCMA is even more vigilant in its effort to positively impact the lives of young people. We invite you to partner with us in this life saving initiative.
With your help, we can give hope to the discouraged, illuminate a path for those who need direction, and empower at-risk youth and young males to live better lives. Together we can truly make a difference!
