On October 18, 2015, Angela Ochsenknecht, Pat Harris, Linda Ridley and Anne Glaser visited the “Women of Gilgal” center  for an afternoon of dining, games and fellowship.

Gilgal’s mission is to educate, equip and empower women to embrace a future free of drugs/alcohol through day treatment, counseling, and life skills.  Gilgal is in its tenth year of serving the Atlanta community. They operate two residential recovery homes, as well one administrative building.  Each facility is equipped and staffed to aid women in their recovery and transition to independent living.
