Serve With Us

Churches in North Georgia have always been on the front lines of caring for children and families in crisis.

Church Partnerships Overview

Amazing Grace Offering

Churches across North Georgia receive the Amazing Grace Offering on the third Sunday in September (or when most convenient for the church) to support the mission and ministry of Wellroot Family Services. 100% of your church’s offering directly supports children and families in Georgia.

A Legacy Of Service

In 1871, Dr. Jesse Boring received a God-sized vision to open a home to care for children orphaned by the Civil War. He was not deterred by the challenges he encountered but was bolstered by the Methodist Church to follow God’s vision for the transformation of the lives of children. Over the next 15 decades, as the needs of children and families in Georgia has changed, Wellroot Family Services continues to live out the bold vision we have inherited through our past, while innovating our practices for today and into the future. 

The ministry of Christian people – the Church – must meet the challenges of the day. As the leading faith-centered family services organization in Georgia, Wellroot helps people reach their God-given potential through the encouragement of a healthy and loving home. With a God-sized vision, the support of local churches like yours empowers us to move forward in faith and trust. We are proud of our partnership and our shared 150-year history of faith-centered service in North Georgia. We look forward to the ways we will live out this vision together!
