- The Potters House Family and Children Treatment Center
With a storied history of philanthropy, The Potter’s House Family and Children Treatment Center, situated in Stone Mountain, Georgia, is a center for abused and neglected children in Stone Mountain and the surrounding area. The idea for The Potter’s House came from Jeffrey and Vivian Tobias, who wanted to provide a stable and consistent community for children, regardless of race, color, creed, or religious background. Beginning in 1999, Jeffrey and Vivian started their organization, then called The Boys to Men Discovery Home, in their own home. What started as a one-home operation with seven children has since expanded to three homes and a full-service children’s mental health facility. The Potter’s House is built on three core values: respect, restoration, and steadfastness. In order to serve all at-risk children and families, the foundation must respect, and strive to preserve, the uniqueness of each child. The restoration aspect is the center’s commitment to assisting each child in becoming a well-rounded and productive member of society by restoring the child’s mind, body, and soul. Steadfastness refers to The Potter’s House’s adherence to its faith. By maintaining these core values, and with the aid of dedicated workers and volunteers, The Potter’s House has assisted countless children since its inception.
