One Big Idea: Solving Coweta's Homeless Crisis

A proposal to turn a former textile mill into a service center for homeless Cowetans – providing shelter, food, job training, counseling and other services – was formally presented Friday to the Newnan Rotary Club.

Rotarian Bill Headley owns the long-shuttered mill in Sargent, and his idea to turn it into a place where the local homeless can get the tools and support they need if they desire to become more successful.

Headley said God placed the homeless issue on his heart, so he began thinking about something he could do about it. He’s owned the 150,000 square foot mill, which sits on 16 acres in the Sargent village, for years.
