$10,000 Donated to Christian City by 100 Coweta Women Who Care

Christian City Children & Family Programs received $10,000 from 100 Coweta Women Who Care, to serve the residents of Coweta County. Newnan and Coweta County fire stations and law enforcement departments are Safe Place locations, which are served by Christian City, a licensed National Safe Place agency with a mission to rescue youth from human traffickers and the perils of living on the streets. Coweta Communities in Schools is also a partner with Christian City in this effort. For the past three years, three boys from Coweta County have been full-time residents of Christian City Children’s Village. In addition, Christian City’s Crossroads Foster Care & Adoption Program is working with four foster families from Coweta County to place children in stable, loving homes.

About Coweta Women Who Care
Coweta Women Who Care is a program of the Coweta Community Foundation. 100 women gather quarterly to donate money and award a grant of $10,000 to a single organization that is serving the residents of Coweta County.
