Beyond The Bell
Beyond The Bell was formed in 2002 to provide after school and summer enrichment programs for at-risk children and youth. The agency was founded by Sandra Dean who saw the need in the Lithonia and Decatur community children and youth to have a safe and healthy place to spend time outside of school.
The mission of C.A.U.S.E. is to form an alliance of individuals and organizations seriously committed to the healthy growth of our communities. By being actively involved, C.A.U.S.E. seeks to identify and/or provide necessary resources and programs aimed at the advancement of families and the enrichment of communities.
