Rush Center lays off entire staff, shuts down after 12 years

The Phillip Rush Center abruptly closed on Monday, leaving five employees jobless and clients of the non-profit’s Health Initiative program without its long-running services.

The Rush Center board claimed that the coronavirus pandemic led to the closure, according to a statement provided to Project Q Atlanta on Wednesday. 

“It is with much sadness that we announce the closing of the Rush Center, effective Monday, June 15, 2020,” the statement said. “Due to the unprecedented effects of the COVID pandemic, the Rush Center is unable to continue operations. As a gathering space and location for service provision, it has been impossible to fully operate since March. This has taken a tremendous toll on the organization and sadly we must close operations.”
