Perhaps the most revealing aspect of a place is how residents support and care for one another, including the most vulnerable in the community. Decatur residents are friendly, neighborly, kind, and look out for each other. We do this individually and as part of organized efforts by groups we belong to such as nonprofits, our faith communities, and other charitable organizations.
Below are several of our largest organizations committed to meeting the needs of all our residents. Learn more about their efforts and get in touch with them directly to join in positively impacting our community.
