The award ceremony was held at the University of Georgia Fine Arts Theatre (a 2010 award winner) this past Monday. Our Pope Street Cottage was recognized for the reconstruction and restoration of it's original Georgian floor plan. We are proud that Children First can continue to be a place that the families in our programs can feel at home.
Rehabilitation is defined as: “The act or process of returning a property to a state of utility through repair or alteration which makes possible an efficient contemporary use while preserving those features of the property which are significant to its historical, architectural, and cultural values.”
