Lee Carroll Elected Board Chair of Childcare Center for Homeless Families
Decatur, GA.—Lee Carroll, associate professor of supervised ministry at Columbia Theological Seminary, has been elected to a two-year term as chair of the board of Our House, a childcare and support center for homeless families in Decatur, GA. Carroll has served on its board of directors for the past five years. A community partner of United Way, Our House was established 16 years ago by a group of local citizens as a free childcare service for homeless parents seeking employment and permanent housing. It also provides job training, counseling, and transportation assistance. Located in a 3,200-square-foot facility adjacent to the Columbia Presbyterian Church, the center has a full–time staff of two family advocates and nine teachers. Our House was the first homeless-specific childcare center to receive accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Columbia Theological Seminary, located in Decatur, Georgia, was established in 1828 and is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
