Atlanta Hawks Celebrates Black History Month Recognizing Lisa Williams as a Trailblazer

Lisa Williams, Activist and President and Founder of Living Water for Girls and Learning Resource Center was honored and celebrated by the Atlanta Hawks on February 22, 2013 as an African-American Trailblazer.

During the Hawks game on February 22 vs. the Sacramento Kings, the Hawks will recognize Lisa Williams, founder of Living Water for Girls. Like the young women she now provides refuge for, Williams’ childhood was plagued with abuse, leaving her abandoned and homeless, by the age of 12. In 2007, she launched Living Water for Girls, a residential, educational and therapeutic safe refuge for young American girls who have been exploited from life on the streets. Living Water for Girls is an outlet for Williams’ core passion of helping others escape a life that they don’t deserve. It is this supreme passion that has earned her national accolades for her work, including being honored as a Ford Motor Company “Ford Freedom Unsung Award” Winner and receiving a Proclamation from the City of Atlanta.
