Make-A-Wish is the legacy of Chris Greicius, a 7-year-old boy from Phoenix. Chris was diagnosed with leukemia, but more than anything else, he always wanted to be a police officer. Caring people in his community granted his wish and set in motion a phenomenon that would create an unprecedented kind of charity.
Wishes don't just happen on their own. Make-A-Wish® is only able to create life-changing wish experiences with help from dedicated staff, volunteers, donors and other supporters. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. That is why wishes matter, and that is why we support this great cause.
Christian City ministers to families, but focuses primarily on the needs of abused and abandoned children, the aged and infirm. Services provided include residential, health and social services delivered in a manner consistent with the Christian faith. The Christian City campus is a vibrant and active Atlanta retirement community as well as refuge for children without families of their own. Every effort is made to see that both children and the aged have enriched and rewarding lives.
While expressly Christian in orientation, Christian City does not discriminate in any way with regard to who can benefit from services and ministries provided. They minister to the physical as well as the spiritual needs of people as an expression of the Love of God to them. It is also our hope that everyone served by Christian City enjoys an enriched and fulfilling life.
