Funding Dilemma in Forsyth County

Nonprofits continue to grow in Georgia while funding is waning, according to a report in Forsyth News. This year, Forsyth County contributed to 10 local agencies that work with the juvenile court. New nonprofits, such as Mentor Me North Georgia and the Children’s Center for Hope and Healing are struggling to provide services with limited resources. “The agencies themselves are saying that even in this tough economic time, we have got to figure out how to provide those services,” Chairwoman Nicole McCoy told Forsyth News. Some agencies are trying to vary their funding sources by using both grants and donations.
