North Fulton Community Charities assists residents living in North Fulton serving the cities of Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park and Roswell with short-term emergency needs. NFCC collaborates with many local providers to provide the resources necessary to help individuals and families remain stable in our community. NFCC provides services in English and Spanish.
Emergency Financial Assistance
NFCC provides direct aid to the providers for rent, utilities, medical, transportation and other basic needs on an emergency basis. Clients are prequalified based on their residence and must schedule to meet with a caseworker for assistance.
You can also make an appointment to sign up for the LiHeap program for help with your heating bill.
NFCC distributes donated food – fresh, frozen, non-perishable items plus toiletries, paper goods and cleaning products. All items are based on quantities and availability. Food from the NFCC Food Pantry is available to anyone in North Fulton that is in need, Monday through Friday.
NFCC’s Thrift Shop sells donated clothing, household goods and furniture at bargain prices to the community. Clients receive a monthly clothing voucher or allowance.
NFCC helps families move toward financial stability and self-sufficiency by offering free adult basic education and life skill classes including English, GED test preparation, financial and computer literacy, workforce readiness and more. Classes are free and open to our community space permitting. On-site childcare is provided at no cost to participants for most evening and weekend classes.
Government Benefits Screening
NFCC partners with the Atlanta Food Bank and DFCS to provide Government Benefits Screening. Government benefits include Food Stamps, Medicaid, WIC, and Subsidized Child Care. A screening to find out if you qualify and are eligible is available every Monday in the Education Center. Appointments are on a first-come, first-serve basis. The education center opens at 9am. A line often forms before the center is open.
Computer Lab Services
A computer lab is open in the Education Center for NFCC clients from 1-4pm Monday through Friday. Existing NFCC clients can use the computer lab on the referral of a caseworker, job coach or instructor. No children are allowed in the computer lab.
