ATHENS, Ala. (WHNT) - Congressman Mo Brooks toured "The Haven" Monday morning, the latest community outreach program of Athens' Central Church of Christ. Located at the corner of 5th Avenue and Malone in Athens, the Haven is directly across the street from a government housing project.

Rev. Bill Perkins, of Central Church of Christ, says that housing project has more children than any other government housing facility in Athens.

The Haven was created to interact with neighborhood children, provide afternoon snacks, and help with homework as needed.
