StreetWise Georgia conducts many holiday programs and special events throughout the year. From passing out backpacks before school starts to distributing dresses before prom arrives, StreetWise desires to extravagantly bless every client that comes through.

Our events are focused on filling practical needs, as well as ministering to the spiritual needs of each family in attendance. For some families, this is the one message of hope that they will receive all year, so we take every opportunity to tell of the Lord and His love!

Interested in attending an event? Please call 678-985-9952 to register or receive more information.

Prom Starganza

Prom Starganza

StreetWise Georgia partners with The Gwinnett County Department of Family and Child Services(DFCS) to make a dream come true for young women and men who could not otherwise attend their prom. Gently-used prom dresses and suits are collected by donation prior to the event. Ladies and gentlemen come in at their appointed times and receive assistance from StreetWise Volunteers as they pick out everything they will need for prom. The young women can then have their hair styled, nails painted and makeup applied, all in time to have their pictures taken! The Gospel is thoroughly communicated to each student as they receive attentive care and are verbally presented with the truth of God’s love for them.

Volunteer Responsibilities: manage sign-in, set up, break down, style hair, apply make-up, manicure nails, alter dresses Back to Top

Christmas Programs

Christmas Birthday Party for Jesus & Adopt-a-Family Program

Each December StreetWise gathers to celebrate the greatest gift ever given: Jesus!

Birthday Party for Jesus

This Christmas, we want to give every child a gift to unwrap and to know the love of Christ by attending one of our largest events of the year!

Adopt-a-Family Program

To many of us, Christmas delivers food, fun and family time. For others, however, holidays present no more than a nagging reminder of lack. Ever wanted to share your blessings with those less fortunate, but just didn’t know how? The StreetWise Adopt-a-Family Program makes it easy!

Volunteer Responsibilities: wrap gifts, register and usher guests, counsel those who give their lives to Christ Back to Top
