To build self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness and hunger in our community by providing emergency assistance and enrichment programs.
In 1983, a group of local concerned citizens and the faith community came together to form an organization to support families who experienced an unexpected crisis. Based in Roswell, this organization became North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) and has helped local residents threatened with homelessness or hunger with basic resources: food, clothing and shelter. NFCC remains dedicated to preventing homelessness and hunger for residents living north of the Chattahoochee River in Fulton County – Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park and Roswell with emergency assistance and education.

Making An Impact
Each year, close to 10,000 individuals receive over $1.5M in emergency financial assistance to remain stably housed; more than 26,000 food pantry orders are filled; and over 1,200 adults attend education classes in workforce readiness and life skills development at NFCC. The assistance allows more than 2,600 families to remain in their home – not in a car, storage shed, or other unsafe living conditions. More than 90% of those receiving assistance are stably housed for 90 days or more after coming to NFCC for help. Community donations and volunteers are vital to continuing our success.
The Need in North Fulton
Poverty in the suburbs is increasing. The average price of a modest 2 bedroom rental in North Fulton is $1,300 per month. A wage earner has to earn over $19/hour (minimum wage holding at $7.25) to not be considered housing unstable. Many of our essential workers in teaching, public safety, nursing, and customer service in our community are one pay check away from eviction. One emergency – lost pay to illness or injury, a car repair, or medical need is why families turn to NFCC for help.
Save the Dates for Golfing with NFCC
North Fulton Community Charities will hold two golf fundraising events this Spring. Monday April 29th is the 11th annual Swing Into Action Golf Tournament at the Country Club of the South.
