The Eden Project

We are an all-volunteer Fayette county 501 (c) 3, veteran run – veteran organization. Our primary emphasis is here in Fayette and Coweta counties of Georgia but we will never turn away a veteran. With two high level goals; Helping veterans AND Partnering with other service organizations we emphasize Engaging, Encouraging, and Empowering the warrior and his or her support system to promote and sustain the reintegration process. The transition from a military to a civilian career can be a difficult journey but it doesn’t have to be. It is made even more difficult if the warrior has experienced physical and/or emotional trauma, long or multiple deployments away from their family or both.

Education

Beyond the county’s excellent school system, a growing number of higher education opportunities are available in and around Fayette County. Easy access to higher education is an important asset to our community. Traditional and non-traditional students will find higher education opportunities within easy reach of home.
