OUR MISSION

Georgia Adult Congenital Hearts’ mission is to assist congenital heart teens and adults in living longer and healthier lives by providing educational, social and community events in and around Atlanta…

ABOUT US

GACH is a faith-based organization created by and for individuals with a congenital heart defect. God created us for His glory and a special purpose. As congenital heart patients, we understand the specific day to day challenges associated with CHD.  This means that we can effectively reach out to those with congenital heart defects and help them in various ways through an educational Website and brochures, connecting them with others, arranging opportunities for community services and hosting ACHD conferences right here in Georgia.

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26

Our vision for CHD
teens and adults

For Teens

Our vision is that every pediatric CHD patient would be knowledgeable about their CHD care and responsibilities with an understanding that CHD means life-long care. This will make their transfer from pediatric to adult CHD care easier emotionally and logistically.

For ADULTS

Our vision for CHD adults is that they come to the realization that they are not alone! There are others who can relate to what they are going through. We hope to bring support through brochures, in-patient and out-patient hospital visits (upon request), educational events and social gatherings. It is important that we can all come together and learn from not only cardiologists, but also each other. Experience-sharing can sometimes bring a revelation of reality that is life-changing.
