Erin’s Hope for Friends – E’s Club

Posted on

Parents –

We want to provide you with information about a wonderful opportunity for students in our area.

The charity Erin’s Hope for Friends was started over two years ago by Darren and Stacy Horst when they tragically lost their daughter Erin to suicide. Erin had Asperger’s and struggled to make friends. As a result, they started Erin’s Hope. There’s a video on the main page of our website at www.erinshopeforfriends.org that gives some information about e’s Club and our history.

E’s Club is a place where students with disabilities ages 12 thru seniors in high school can meet, hang out and make friends. It is not social skills therapy. We have organized activities (music, karate, art, etc.), but we also have gaming tables and different low-stress activities to help foster social interaction. The program currently runs on Friday evenings from 7-10pm at our Acworth and Alpharetta locations and Saturday evenings from 6-9 pm at our Alpharetta location. We host up to 32 kids each evening. We are located at 4492 Acworth Industrial Drive, Acworth, GA 30101 and 11940 Alpharetta Hwy, Suite 110, Alpharetta, Ga, 30009.

Every child interested in becoming a member of the program must go through our drop-in process before they can begin attending. At drop-in you can tour the facility and complete the intake interview.  We do need an RSVP to secure your spot and slots fill up quickly.  Please contact Becky Matthews at [email protected] if you would like to know when we will have our next drop in or have any other questions!
