since 1975 The Place of Forsyth county, Inc. is a private Social Service agency that has been serving the public good by assisting residents in their time of need with Emergency basic need.
We are able to provide food, financia assistance for survival needs. We also have a thrift store where people can donate or shop and the proceeds supports the agency operations. The store also provides the means to help the needy with items through a voucher system.
Programs are numerous and include events to meet the needs for all, youth, seniors and especially for the holidays. The Place wants to ensure that no one in the county goes hungry.
All assistance that we provide is documented, justified and must be effective to eliminate suffering.
Our mission is "To compassionately listen to those deprived of basic needs and, together with them, find creative ways to eliminate suffering."
