It is with deep sorrow and pain to announce the death of our Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Charles W. Grant, who passed on to eternity April 3, 2014. He will be greatly missed. Please pray for his family and the Clayton County Community Service Authority, Inc.
Rev. Grant devoted almost 50 years of his life to ensuring that the less privileged had a decent life. He made sure that people were treated with respect and dignity regardless of color and ethnicity. He was one of the pioneers of Community Action that worked tirelessly to eradicate poverty in Clayton County and beyond. He always said, his mission and goal was “Helping People to Help Themselves.”
May his soul Rest in Peace.
