No Longer Bound at the Queen

Have you heard about No Longer Bound? It is an organization helping men aged 18 and over recover from addiction though a 10-month, faith-based regeneration program. The purpose of the regeneration program is to provide an opportunity for the men at NLB to learn to take responsibility for their own recovery and adopt a whole lifestyle change.

The organization has greenhouses, a woodworking shop, a print shop, an auto shop, and a thrift shop that help support the program. A 501(c)3 organization, all donations are tax-deductible.

Come to the Alpharetta Queen on May 20-22 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and meet the young men who run the greenhouses at No Longer Bound. They will be selling all types of plants grown in their greenhouses. They will be at the Alpharetta Queen every third weekend beginning this month.

All purchases will benefit this wonderful and much needed program. For more information, go to or visit them on Facebook.
No Longer Bound has also been competing in the Chase Community Giving Contest on Facebook. During the first round, they finished in the top 100 and will receive $25K. Round two voting will take place May 19 through May 26, and NLB will be competing against the top 100 for $500K. If they win, they plan to build a new dorm, which will allow them to help up to 70 percent more men each year. Click here to find out how you can help No Longer Bound in round two.
