Sponsorships Available! Contact us for details

Every year, Family Support Circle hosts an annual fundraising gala in order to raise funds for purposes pertaining to our youth excellence programs across Philadelphia, Georgia, and Haiti. This year, the funds being raised are to support The Gift of H.O.P.E. Project (Haiti Opportunities for Partners in Education) which is an ongoing effort  to build the FSC International School in Haiti which will provide a new school building for our youth in Haiti to educate children and youth from pre-k through high school.

This event also shows the importance of community support for Youth Programming and for those youth that are in need of sponsorship this summer in our Summer Enrichment Programs.

This event will take place at the Henry County Education Training Center  located at 109 South Lee Street, Stockbridge. The event includes a 3 course dinner and hors d’oeuvres, and silent auction. Genie Moore will be hosting and DJ Matticus will be providing the live music!

Dr. Alvetta Peterman Thomas, President of Southern Crescent Technical College, will be the keynote speaker!


We would love to have you join us for a night of dinner, awards, music, and more!

Your support is greatly appreciated!


The Scholarship Center

Grades: 8th-12th

In partnership with The Scholarship Academy, FSC has created a new Scholarship Center to give students and parents an opportunity to search for funding to support their education.

Students receive an average of 15 or more hours to prepare and find funding for college, acquire valuable skills and tools that reduce debts and financial burdens after graduation, and develop writing skills to help create effective essays tailored for each scholarship package.

Students will be able to navigate through hundreds of Local, State, and Regional Funding Opportunities and obtain critical information to apply for colleges with the help and guidance from our FSC mentors.
