Three months after moving to property on Hwy. 9 just south of the historic square in Dawsonville, Abba House has opened the doors of a new event venue and restaurant that will help support the organization’s mission to make broken women whole again. Abba House Co-founder and current President Chris Sharp welcomed a crowd to The Carriage Venue last week to celebrate the newly renovated space with a ribbon cutting ceremony and Business After Hours with the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce. Abba House is a minimum 15-month, faith-based residential treatment facility for women and their children. Its focus is to help women who suffer from life-controlling issues such as addiction, depression, abuse, sexual addiction, eating disorders and more. Last summer, Abba House, which had been located on the Dawson and Forsyth County line since 2000, announced it would be closing two thrift stores on Ga. 400 and in Silver City.
