On Monday November 16th, Edward Bailey, the Executive Director of No Longer Bound will be visiting and speaking at the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs. Edward's story, from that of a meth addict to Executive Director, inspires, engages, and provides hope to families struggling with addiction. Now a business leader and family man, he oversees the $5 million non-profit organization that once saved his life.
NO LONGER BOUND, located in north metro Atlanta, is one of the nation's premier regeneration centers for men with drug and alcohol addiction. No Longer Sound's program of regeneration is intensive, and it works: approximately 70% of those entering the program will graduate. No Longer Bound is uniquely funded, creating both sustainability and affordability for the Residents we serve. 88% of the administrative costs are self-funded through their industries, allowing donors to invest in what matters the most - a man's pursuit of freedom.
Since 2014 his directorship responsibilities have included providing leadership and direction to the organization's mission. He has helped to rescue addicts, regenerate men, and reconcile families. He has responsible for overall strategic planning, revenue generation, financial management, organizational development, staff management, and program operations. He has also over seen a $3.2M capital campaign, needed to renovate careworn facilities.
