Org to Partner With Now: Serenity’s Steps

By Erin Bernhardt, April 8, 2015

Leroy Lamar co-founded Serenity’s Steps, a family-run, Atlanta-based charity organization aiming to support and rehabilitate victims of human trafficking, with his wife, Janelle, in 2012. Conferences coming to the Atlanta area can partner with Serenity’s Steps’ new social enterprise, That Grace Restored, which trains and employs women to make paper goods such as journals (like the one pictured above), note cards and stationery.

“The story of making paper was a perfect analogy for the lives of our friends,” says Lamar. “We collect discarded paper. This paper is shredded, pulped, strained and molded into a thing of beauty and worth.” Planners can contact Lamar to organize a collaborative journal-making class called Stitched with the women of Serenity’s Steps, or order journals or cards made by That Grace Restored as prizes or gifts.
