For years, Family Promise of Gwinnett Secretary Stephanie Potra did not like driving down the section of Scenic Highway that intersected with Moon Road in Lawrenceville.

When Potra was in eighth-grade, her family received housing assistance from Family Promise of Gwinnett, which operated a day center in a house owned by Saint Edwards Episcopal Church just off Scenic Highway on Moon Road. When she got older, driving down the highway brought back memories of the trauma of struggling with housing insecurity.
