Get Involved

The Real Life Center, Real Life Stores, and Harvest for Real Life Fruit Orchard exist to serve families of Fayette and Coweta counties that are going through difficult times.

At the Real Life Center, we seek to offer a “hand up” rather than “handout”. We offer a one-year program designed to help families get back on their feet and to encourage them to set goals that will help promote long-term change.

Our Real Life Stores provide a great place to shop and a fun environment for individuals and groups to come and serve.  They also provide the community with a place to donate gently-used items. All proceeds, after expenses, go back to the Real Life Center to invest in local families.

Our Harvest for Real Life Fruit Orchard provides fresh, nutritional fruit to the Center.  It also provides a rewarding place for individuals and families to volunteer.

If you, your family, business, church, community organization, or school would like to connect with us as a Volunteer, Community Partner, or Private Donor, we would love to talk with you!
