ROSWELL, Ga. — Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb has moved to a new location that will enable it to better serve families facing situational homelessness.
The non-profit’s new location is in the Grove Way Community Center at 89 Grove Way in Roswell. The organization was previously located in St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church in Dunwoody.
Also located in the Grove Way Community Center are the Children’s Development Academy (CDA), which provides affordable early learning programs and childcare for metro Atlanta preschool children, and HomeStretch, a transitional living program, which helps homeless families return to housing self-sufficiency.
“We are incredibly appreciative to the St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church congregation for their years of partnership,” said Andrea Brantley, executive director of Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb. “Moving was an opportunity to expand our reach in the community and build on the incredible strides we’ve made in recent years.
“Even though the lockdown aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic are over, many in our community are still dealing with the consequences of cut hours and lost paychecks,” Brantley added. “This new location is centrally located and close to other non-profit agencies with missions that complement ours. These agencies will help us fulfill our mission of helping families move from crisis to stability as we work to end situational homelessness.”
With the new location’s additional space, Family Promise will be able to create an expanded Career Center, where parents can research job opportunities and a community gathering space.
Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb hasn’t slowed its pace.
More than 200 people turned out for Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb’s Third Annual Family Promise Meals with Meaning Fundraiser in late April. The event raised more than $45,000 to help homeless and at-risk families with children in North Fulton and DeKalb counties.
Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb helps families throughout DeKalb County and the northern portion of Fulton County.
