Who We Are

Gwinnett Cares, a program of the Gwinnett Coalition, is a grassroot community collaborative that’s spun from a large group of community stakeholders initially created to streamline communication to Gwinnett’s population of a million+ people about how to get and give help during the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of Gwinnett Cares is to synchronize Gwinnett’s existing support services and infrastructure to effectively address real-time needs across our community.

While the COVID-19 health crisis spurred the Gwinnett Cares movement, it will now live on long after the pandemic passes to help further strengthen communication about resources for people in need, promote community engagement opportunities, and keep Gwinnett changemakers abreast of ever-changing issues facing our diverse community. 

Stakeholders from all sectors of our community continue to join the effort, hence, we are constantly expanding Gwinnett Cares’ reach and impact. If you would like to connect and engage with one of the Gwinnett Cares action teams, please contact us.

Gwinnett County is now providing assistance, previously offered through the Gwinnett Cares Helpline, through their OneStop 4 HELP, which guides residents in need through the process of finding and acquiring resources and assistance from nonprofits and other charitable organizations. Contact the OneStop 4 Help by phone at 770.822.8850, by email at OneStopHelp@GwinnettCounty.com, or submit an online assistance request to get connected to a OneStop navigator for help.
For more information about this program transition, please see the letter from our CEO, Renee Byrd-Lewis.

We Do Not Provide Money

Gwinnett Cares is not a direct service provider and does not provide relief funds for people in need. Our role is to connect you to non-profit agencies and service providers that specialize in the areas where you need support.
