Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter
The Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter, tucked away on a 45-acre Buford campus, provides education, life skills and job training to young mothers of homeless children as well as young women aging out of foster care.
Guests at the Home of Hope are provided with customized “Life Plans” that are designed around the physical, emotional and educational needs of the kids, while helping their moms create a plan of action to get back on her feet.
For Executive Director Maureen Kornowa and her team, their desire is to take their guests from homeless, to hopeful, to a home of their own.
“We’re very proud to be part of the Community Foundation – the partnership has been instrumental, especially during the almost four years since we’ve moved to a private organization with a new business model,” Maureen said. “Randy and his board have helped open people’s eyes to suburban poverty and have really connected those people who care with causes that matter, like ours at Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter.”
