People First is a non-profit 501 © 3 Corporation. Our Mission is to promote fairness and equality for people with mental and/or physical disabilities and to offer free socials year round for families with children and adults of all ages with special needs. Over the past sixteen years through fund raising, grants, and donations we have serviced over 1,000 families within Henry, Clayton, Fayette, Spalding and Butts County. 100% of all money raised goes directly back into the special needs community.

People First has sponsored the annual “Extra Special EASTER Party” for twelve years, the “Fall Festival” for eleven years and offered other FREE socials throughout the years.
Our activities include attending The Atlanta Dream Women’s Basketball Games, the Henry County Players productions, host Bingo night to win prizes four times a year, host holiday and bowling parties, attend the Henry County Rodeo, host Elvis 50’s party and a Luau as well as other special events. All the events we offer are always FREE to the families.
