For the last episode of 2022, the Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia will take you behind the scenes and talk with some of the “givers” – those helping make their nonprofits’ work possible – and share some stories of how lives are being changed through that giving. This episode includes inspiring stories from Good Samaritan Health Centers of Gwinnett, the Neighborhood Co-op, and Rainbow Village.
Ryan Jones/Neighborhood Cooperative Ministries
Neighborhood Cooperative Ministries (NCM) is a faith-based, non-profit, ecumenical ministry dedicated to providing emergency assistance to families in Norcross, Peachtree Corners, Doraville and Tucker, Georgia of Gwinnett County. NCM is supported by twenty three local churches and numerous businesses, civic and social organizations, foundations, and individuals.
Greg Lang/Good Samaritan Health Centers of Gwinnett
The Good Samaritan Health Center of Gwinnett is a non-profit medical clinic that provides low-cost primary care and disease management services across the life span for uninsured residents of Gwinnett County and surrounding areas. Their goals are to provide quality low cost primary healthcare services to the uninsured, decrease the demand of the uninsured for non-emergency medical services on the local hospital emergency rooms, and provide a venue for medical professionals and laymen of the Christian community to serve a marginalized population.
Justice French/Rainbow Village
The mission of Rainbow Village is to transform the lives of homeless families with children by providing a stable community and services that instill initiative, self-development, and accountability for future generations. Rainbow Village has realized for over 29 years that it is this holistic approach to serving all family members in a safe community that allows their residents to truly break generational cycles of poverty, homelessness, and domestic violence. As their mission is fulfilled, they work towards their vision to be a national model of an educational and holistic approach to breaking the cycles of homelessness, poverty, and domestic violence.
