- May 12, 2014
-- On May 5th, 2014 Judy Jordan Johnson, Mayor of the City of Lawrenceville, signed a proclamation declaring May 17th “Gwinnett County Foster Parent Appreciation Day.”
The Gwinnett County Department of Family and Children Services is currently monitoring the placement of 480 children in their protective custody that have been removed from their homes due to unsafe living arrangements. Gwinnett County DFCS depends on the loving compassion of foster parents who volunteer their homes and support to meet the needs of these children. Currently, there are only 50 county approved foster homes available to care for the 480 children in foster care.
Judy Jordan Johnson proclaimed, “By the virtue of the authority invested in me by the laws of Lawrenceville and Georgia, I do hereby proclaim May 17th, 2014 as Gwinnett County Foster Parent Appreciation Day and encourage all of our citizens to support the organization and its humanitarian mission.
