City of South Fulton Mayor “Bill” Edwards, Fulton County Commissioner Marvin Arrington-District 5 and Atlanta City Council-member Michael Julian Bond- Post 1 At Large will present Singer/Producer/Entrepreneur, Bobby Brown and his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, with a proclamation that acknowledges and thanks them for their plans to build the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House in Atlanta. The Proclamation Presentation will take place on Monday, July 30th at 11:00a.m. at City Hall, City of South Fulton, 5440 Fulton Industrial Blvd., Atlanta, GA 30336.

“Our family lives with the pain everyday of losing my beautiful daughter, Bobbi Kristina, to domestic violence,” stated Bobby Brown. “She loved Atlanta and in her memory we are proud to announce the formation of the Bobby Kristina Serenity House. Our initial goal is to help educate women and men of all ages, by creating a 24-hour crisis intervention line and emergency transitional shelter.”

“Domestic violence crosses all ethnic, racial, sexual preference, economic, age, educational and religious lines and it is incumbent on every citizen to assist those suffering from domestic abuse and let victims know that support is available,” stated Mayor Bill Edwards. “You can count on the City of South Fulton and our local law enforcement as a community partner in the fight against domestic violence.”

The Bobbi Kristina Serenity House will provide victims with access to resources/referral services, and advocates for social change with expert support services for victims and survivors of domestic violence.

“Every community that is touched by domestic violence needs resources to assist men, women and children whose lives have been adversely impacted by the trauma they have been through,” said District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. “We hope that this new facility will serve as a safe haven for domestic violence victims as they seek solace and an opportunity to continue on despite all they have experienced.”
The Serenity House will work to empower females and males of all ages to learn about the perils of domestic violence. The emphasis is on moving from crisis to confidence, while their guiding belief is to build empowerment; regaining power from deep within.

“The City of Atlanta is proud to support the work of the Bobby Christina House. I believe the work is critical and worth the honor,” Councilman Michael J. Bond said.
