Rotary Club of Alpharetta donated $7,500 to HomeStretch in support of the great work they do in the North Fulton Community. They also completed 3 projects for HomeStretch in order to get an apartment ready for a new family to move in. On Tuesday, September 20 and on Thursday, September 22 from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day, fellow Rotarians painted the interior of the apartment. And on Saturday, September 24 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Rotarians cleaned the inside and outside of the apartment. 


Rotarian Karen Nolan said, “Alpharetta Rotarians are happy to volunteer their time and resources to give families in our community a hand up through HomeStretch. HomeStretch families are proud hardworking members of our community and Homestretch offers them the support they need to ensure they have the opportunity for a bright successful future.”

HomeStretch is an organization that addresses some of the root causes of homelessness in our community. It is one of the few programs in the country that not only provides housing but works with the families to help stop the cycle of homelessness. The Rotary Club of Alpharetta annually sponsors an apartment and a family at HomeStretch. In addition, Alpharetta Rotarians serve as Financial and Life Mentors for the family. 

President of Alpharetta Rotary, Jason Binder stated, “Our club is very proud to support HomeStretch not only with money, but with fellow Rotarians participating together to make sure an apartment is clean and freshly painted and ready for a new family to move in soon. HomeStretch provides valuable services and support to members of the community and on behalf of Alpharetta Rotarians, I look forward to our continued work with Homestretch in the coming years.”
