What do Harry Houdini, Halle Berry, Jewel, and Dr. Phil all have in common? They were all homeless at one point in their lives.

We've all had experiences when it felt like life was kicking us in the shins or punching us in the gut. Our car breaks down or our job is eliminated. We NEED help.

When our best friend suffers from bouts of depression, our neighbor's child is diagnosed with cancer, or we read about a family whose house burned down, we WANT to help.

It doesn't take a lot to give back. A quote by Margaret Mead says, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed it's the only thing that ever has." Helping hands strengthen and make our community more dynamic.

According to World Cancer Research Fund International, America is sixth in the world for countries with the highest cancer cases. Luckily for us, Gwinnett has ranked number one in the world for Relay For Life fundraising efforts. In 24 years, Gwinnett's Relay For Life has raised more than $39 million to fund patient services and cutting-edge research.

Each year, thousands volunteer to help with projects ranging from staffing community events, to painting and repairing buildings, installing playground sets, and cleaning up nature trails as part of Gwinnett's Great Days of Service. In 2016, there were 63,700 volunteers who completed 403 projects serving 65 agencies, 110 Gwinnett County Public Schools and 10 cities.

From charities to churches, Gwinnett is filled with people and organizations willing to help. After all some of the most famous people in the world were homeless, and all they needed was a chance. Where will you lend a helping hand?
