StreetWise Georgia celebrates with Special Events, hosts Programs, and conducts Training Classes throughout the year. From passing out Backpacks before school starts, distributing dresses before Prom arrives, and participating in canned food drives, StreetWise desires to extravagantly bless every client that comes through our doors.

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? Clients please call 678-985-9952 or 678-985-9915 Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday 10:15 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. to register or receive more information.

Christmas Programs

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

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

Birthday Party for Jesus

At Christmastime, StreetWise has a family program where families and children get to know the love of Jesus! After the program every child in attendance receives gifts and the family is provided a Take-Home-Meal Box with all the fixings for a delicious Christmas meal.

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 by just clicking the DONATE TODAY! button on our website and in the PayPal message field just type “Family”.

Volunteer Responsibilities: Wrap gifts, register and usher guests, counsel those who give their lives to Christ.
