This year, North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) celebrated 50 years of easing the hardships of those facing housing and food insecurity for the North Fulton community with a fall festival at one of its two Roswell locations. Even throughout the coronavirus pandemic NFCC continued to care for the community.

“Putting safety protocols in place quickly allowed us to continue offering food assistance,” said Holly York, executive director of NFCC.

Though NFCC did have to scale back services for a while, they’ve begun to return to normal operations now, with added safety precautions. For several months, NFCC also hosted CORE Response vaccination clinics.

“Early intervention saves our clients critical time and resources needed to get or stay employed,” said York. “Having a safety net eases stress and allows struggling families the space to recover with their dignity intact. We have very low barriers to access for food and clothing assistance. For some, just that savings is enough to stabilize income and begin to thrive.”

Services are offered through five program areas: case management/financial assistance, client choice food pantry, client choice clothing, education and workforce development and community outreach all of which are offered in both English and Spanish.
