Where Resilient Families Take Shape

Where Resilient Families Take Shape

“Home is a special place. Not just a roof over our head, but a safe, secure, loving environment shared with those we care about most. It might be easy to take this concept for granted, but there are thousands of children and young adults in the foster care system of Georgia who don’t know what a stable home feels like. As an agency of The United Methodist Church in North Georgia, Wellroot Family Services’ programs, Foster Care, Transitional and Independent Living and Family Housing, were designed to change this reality through faith-centered service. With a focus on supporting youth from infancy through early adulthood, we help people reach their God-given potential through the encouragement and love of a healthy home.”

Wellroot Family Services Virtual 5k

This event was the first-ever social distancing 5K. Participants signed up online and received a t-shirt. On the day of the event, a live opening and closing ceremony were hosted on Facebook and Instagram. The participants mapped out their 5K run and then tracked it through an app. They uploaded their race map and time to social media before the closing ceremonies.
