The GFWC Carrollton Civic Woman’s Club met by way of video conferencing on Wednesday, June 24, at 11:30.

CCWC continues to meet and to serve the community during this time of “shelter in place.”

Donna Simmers, chair of the Conservation Community Service Program, introduced the speaker, Dr. Joseph Cox, executive director of the Rapha Clinic of West Georgia. Dr. Cox spoke to the club about the mission of the faith-based Rapha clinic to deliver medical and dental treatment to the uninsured in our community.

Eighteen months ago, the Rapha Clinic with a grant from the Community Foundation of West Georgia, joined the Waypoint Ranch for Veterans to create the Healing Point Community Food Project. The Healing Point Project makes use of agri-therapy to give veterans a mission to grow and cultivate plants in their community. The project boosts veterans’ mental health and helps them adjust to life outside the service.
