Bailey Beaver was born and raised in Georgia and has lived in Cartersville for 6 years. After owning a successful event planning company for 10 years she decided that it was time to use her gifts and talents for a different purpose. Bailey's true love language is serving others. She first began serving in the community during Hope for Christmas 2014 which quickly turned into a lead position the following year. Once the BLESS Coalition became more than just an idea, she became our lead coordinator for all of our events and programs.
" I absolutely love Bartow County! In the past 6 years I have met so many people and organizations that care very much about individuals in this community that are suffering for one reason or another. It's inspiring that such a small place in the world can do so much. There is an organization willing to help families for any situation you can think of. I believe that our neighbors in the Allatoona Community have been forgotten and pushed aside. The excuse is that they can't be helped.
Allatoona is certainly not the only community that needs help, but we have been lead to start there. The responsibility of bringing these families out of poverty should not be left up to the government or one church. We are asking every organization, business or individual that serves the community in some way to come to the south corner of Bartow County and do what they do best. And we will support them in any way that we can. Meanwhile, we are committed to loving on our neighbors on a consistent basis so that we can build connections, earn trust and learn more about what their needs are. It is humbling to think that I get to be a part of something with such great impact."
Bailey received her Culinary Arts degree from the Art Institute of Atlanta, but requests that you not ask her to cook for you. It is definitely not her passion anymore. She enjoys traveling, being with family and working out. She lives in Cartersville with her husband Casey and their children, Garren and Ella Grace. (And two dogs, Willie and Waylon)
In addition to the BLESS Coalition, Bailey is a:
- Member of the Bartow Collaborative
- Board member of the Allatoona Resource Center
- Administrative assistant for Bartow Give a Kid a Chance
