Downtown Life

Relationships are essential to life, and we want to help Athens youth and their families build strong, consistent relationships that matter. Downtown Life helps our community build healthy relationships that improve life and last for a lifetime.



Downtown Academy students receive an education that opens their eyes to the world! One window to the world is a relationship with a caring member of the community. Lunch Buddies are community volunteers who seek to build a positive relationships with Downtown Academy students through regularly sharing a meal during the school day.


Everyone needs help from time to time, and Downtown Life helps Athens families identify and access community resources that meet critical needs that may arise for a family.
