Joan Garner

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of one of our National Advisory board Members and Vice Chair of the Fulton County Commission, Joan Garner. Throughout Foreverfamily’s existence, Joan has been a supporter. We received our first grant in 1987 from the Fund for Southern Community where Joan was a program officer. In that role, she provided lots of technical assistance to the agency in the early years. Joan was a presenter at our first board retreat in the fall of 1987 and conducted a fundraising training session. Most recently she worked with the Fulton County Jail to ensure that there was a review of visitation policies for children.
Over the last few years, Joan, 65, had battled breast cancer and during that prolonged struggle continued to support Foreverfamily, her district, and the metro Atlanta community. We are honored to have known her and to have had her as a member of our National Advisory Board for the last five years.

Two boys and two girls, ages 6-13, who haven’t seen each other since 2013 need your help. They have not been in the same room since their mom went to prison two years ago. While extended family stepped in, none could raise all of them. Now, they live in four separate locations; three in metro Atlanta and one in Dallas, GA.

More than anything, these brothers and sisters want to see and hug each other. They want to be together and spend time reconnecting, having fun and sharing a meal.

Their family members, though doing their best, are struggling to make ends meet. Winter clothes and school supplies for the children would mean a lot as well.

It is my hope that you can help me help these brothers and sisters get together so that they can be reminded that come what may, they are Forever Family.
