The event was hosted by Life House Atlanta (LHA), a nonprofit founded in 2018 to be a specialized home-away-from-home where families can bring their child with life-limiting illness for a respite stay. There are currently only three facilities in the United States providing such services. LHA will be the first in Georgia.
