Project of the Year: GSYH

Written by: Jaehun Baek, District Projects Chair

The Georgia Sheriffs' Youth Homes (GSYH) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing residential care and support to Georgia's at-risk children and youth. Founded in 1960, the GSYH operates as a network of group homes throughout the state of Georgia.

The primary goal of the Georgia Sheriffs' Youth Homes is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children and teenagers who have experienced difficult circumstances, such as abuse, neglect, or unstable family situations. The organization works closely with local law enforcement agencies, particularly county sheriffs' offices, to identify and admit children who can benefit from their services.

Since 1988, Georgia District of Key Club International has been working with GSYH to raise funds for necessary supplies through year-long district project and special events, including

the Office/Education Center at Pineland/Camp Pioneer, Education Center at Cherokee Estate, Christmas parties and gifts every year at each campus, Griffin Evans Scholarship given annually to a graduating senior, Sports/Fun Day, visits to each campus each year, and a new Pineland Chapel. As of last year, the Georgia District Board raised funds for an outdoor pavilion and family counseling area at the Boy’s Ranch Campus in Hahira, GA- aptly dubbed the Key Club Wellness Pavilion. The Georgia District of Key Club International is looking to raise the bar once again in 2023-24 with yet another opportunity: fundraising for furniture. With the goal of $20,000, the Key Clubbers in the state of Georgia will take another step to answer the call of help.
