At a recent dedication ceremony, Christian City staff also unveiled a fountain built in honor of the Harpers, who were instrumental in founding the center for abused and abandoned children.

Dr. Harper passed away several years ago, but his widow Rose Marie was on hand to witness the center's dedication ceremony. Rose Marie Harper is still an active member of Christian City's Board of Trustees.

Union City-based Christian City is a conglomeration of nine organizations that serve homeless children and active seniors in metro Atlanta. Learn more at christiancity.org.
