Beyond being a day of fun for the children and families served by the Children’s Home, this event will raise awareness of the need for more foster families – more than 9,500 children and growing are in the custody of the state of Georgia. Good care, including foster care, is urgently needed for these children. Learn more about fostering. >
 
We are inviting all of families and children we serve, including our foster families from across North Georgia; the young adults living on our campus, who are still part of Georgia’s foster care system; and the families at risk of homelessness who live in our on-campus family housing.
 
Fam Fest will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sept. 20, and we will provide a catered lunch in a private pavilion. A brief ceremony will precede lunch, to be emceed by WXIA TV news anchor DeMarco Morgan. The Tin Roof Band will provide music.
