- Good Samaritan Health Center, which provides medical services to uninsured and underinsured working poor at a location in Lawrenceville, will apply the $50,000 Challenge Grant to its 3.0 Project focused on relocation and expansion. The center has recently launched a $3.5 capital campaign to purchase a larger facility with more parking and expand its services to provide dental, pediatrics, a pharmacy and mental health clinic.
- The IMPACT! Group, an agency that offers a variety of housing assistance services that help families from all economic backgrounds, will use its $50,000 grant to kick off a $2 million capital campaign called IMPACT! For Vets that will focus on delivering housing facilities and specialized services for veterans. According to HUD, there are nearly 3,600 homeless veteran families in the Gwinnett community.
- The Norcross Cooperative Ministry will apply a $15,000 grant toward its Restoring Hope Campaign. The organization’s $3.5 million capital campaign has been focused on stabilizing hundreds of families in the Gwinnett community by offering support and guidance via education, employment services, emergency housing, food and clothing distribution, transportation, children’s activities and more.
- Creative Enterprises’ $10,000 challenge will go toward its new Paving the Way & Smoothing the Transition Campaign. With a mission dedicated to the enhancement of the lives of individuals with disabilities, it is imperative that the parking lots, driveways and sidewalks are smooth, level and in good repair to ensure adequate mobility and safety for clients. The grant dollars will be used to repave all driveways and parking areas connecting the seven buildings on Creative Enterprises’ campus.
