Open house to showcase Family Promise of Forsyth Countys day center

NORTH FORSYTH — A building at a church near Cumming that is expected to soon become part of a sustainability program for homeless families will open its doors to the public Saturday.

From 1 to 3 p.m., Family Promise of Forsyth County is holding an open house for its new day center at Freedom Tabernacle.

Located at 2160 Freedom Parkway between Exits 16 and 17 on Ga. 400, the building will be where parents and children not in school will spend the day while in the program.

Family Promise is a nonprofit that operates nationwide, and as close as northern Fulton and Gwinnett and Hall counties.

Each program can serve up to 14 individuals — parents and children — at a time who are homeless by housing them in one of 13 churches, on a weekly rotating basis.

While school-age children are in class, parents receive financial planning and work force development classes while their young children attend day care at the same location.

The open house is free to attend. Lunch will be provided.
