This is a staggering number and as a community we can make a difference together!
We are excited and proud to be a Presenting Sponsor for Acworth Cares, a foster care celebration and recruitment night on November 1st, 2023! Come and learn about how we can love and support foster families in our community! Acworth Cares is for anyone who wishes to help the foster community, including families, businesses, faith communities, and other organizations!
We believe in supporting causes and fulfilling needs in our community to create and inspire healthier communities. Our Service with Love Giving Fund provides opportunities to contribute and improve the overall wellbeing of others in our community, which is being done through our sponsorship of Acworth Cares.
“Kids in foster care deserve a safe, stable, nurturing family that will provide them with the opportunity to reach their fullest potential”. “These are our kids, and we can’t fail them”, said Melissa Conti, President of Innovative Fitness. “
In late 2022, Mayor Allegood of Acworth, GA began partnering with GA Kids Belong on its Foster Friendly initiative. Realizing that foster families were an underserved, yet critically important, population in our community, he decided to challenge the whole city to be Foster Friendly! Acworth Cares is the result of this challenge! If we work together, by the end of 2023, Acworth is on track to become Georgia’s first Foster Friendly City!
