CONYERS — From structural renovations to a change in leadership, one of the longest-serving non-profit service organizations — specifically dedicated to serving Rockdale County residents — has undergone a series of changes this year.

But one thing that has not changed for Rockdale Emergency Relief is its mission to help underserved families in their time of need. It’s an effort that Sandra Jackson-Lett, the newly installed executive director for the Conyers non-profit, says has nearly doubled since the pandemic.
