Atlanta was launched in October 2020. Two families’ commitment to their community, kids of all abilities, and Java Joy helped create our spread to Atlanta. Chad & Kim Lindsey had special ties to ESP, as former summer counselors. They now have a son, Hayes, who is an ESP participant. Java Joy in Atlanta will one day expand the resources and community available to Hayes! Our other Atlanta Champions, Ryan & Ashley Edmonds, connected with Laura Whitaker, ESP’s Executive Director through Leadership Georgia. They were able to experience the joy and were inspired to bring Java Joy to Atlanta. Java Joy Atlanta serves throughout the metro area and employs 20 Joyristas!
