“Anyone can end up in need, whether caused by an accident, mental or physical illness, addiction, or any number of other reasons,” said Howard. “This agreement opens up an opportunity to improve the continuum of care for the residents of our county by connecting providers and providing appropriate support to the Gwinnett standard…United Way is a great partner to help us meet this goal.”
