PAWKidsPAWKids is committed to coming alongside of parents in the holistic development of their child – physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually!

Founder and Executive Director LaTonya Gates-Boston saw the need for an after-school program in the Grove Park neighborhood of Atlanta, GA. Coming from a rocky start in life herself, LaTonya saw children who needed encouragement, motivation and positive role models. But she soon also saw that the parents of these children needed someone sensitive to the challenges and obstacles they faced while trying to provide for their families. So in October 2014, LaTonya transitioned to work on PAWKids full time. She has been dedicated to ensuring the new PAWKids home is a welcoming, inviting place for community members and PAWKids families.
