Family Haven is a wonderful assistance program that offers refuge to women and children who have been victim to domestic violence.

​We hold this charity near and dear to our hearts and plan on hosting a charity event annually in November in memory of our younger brother Uday (Uday means Rise) who lost his fight with cancer in November of 2012 at a young age of 25.

How can you help?

SSMS Management, Staff and Parents will be contributing food, clothes, toys, books and monetary donations and will also volunteer time. This cannot be done by just a few hands, hence ​we are reaching out to all our friends, family and local business owners to assist in our efforts.

Some organizations who have already decided to partner with us are: Subway, Dickey’s BBQ Pit, Georgia Aquarium, Chick-fil-A, Fox’s Den Pizza, Totally Running, Sweet and Sassy, to name a few.
