2011 Family Promise Bed Race is Fast Approaching!
What is Family Promise of Gwinnett? The Family Promise of Gwinnett Network Program brings shelter, meals, and support services to families without homes. Family Promise of Gwinnett Networks are a cost-efficient, effective, and replicable community response to family homelessness.
Clipping for a Cause assists Family Promise by clipping coupons and purchasing items such as laundry detergent and personal care items at a fraction of the normal cost.
