GFWC Roswell Care’s Community Service Programs and Special Projects focus on major issues that affect our communities daily—supporting women’s health, preserving natural resources, promoting literacy and equality, citizen advocacy, and encouraging volunteer service—and fall into the following areas of focus: Arts, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Outreach and Public Issues.
Our Club members and their families will enjoy working in all six program areas. In addition, we would love to partner with high schools to engage students to serve with local projects and work with community partners. Students who join our club will have the opportunity to work side by side with our members while engaging in leadership activities. This will build their leadership skills and college resume.
All members are encouraged to select a “program of work” wherein their interest lies. The Six Community Service Programs are listed below. There is something for everyone who becomes a member of the Federation. Each Community Service Program has an area where club members work to improve their communities through different projects. There are also organizations that Partner with the General Federation of Women’s Clubs and provide resources and suggestions for each Program. GFWC Program partners are the organizations with whom GFWC has established a formal relationship and mutual understanding.

GFWC Georgia’s State President, Tina Daniel has chosen Girl Scouts as her signature project. Girl Scouts offers the best leadership development experience for girls in the world. Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership—from taking a night-time hike under the stars to accepting a mission on the International Space Station; from lobbying the city council with her troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running her own cookie business today to tackling cybersecurity tomorrow. We believe that Girls Scouts are our future members and leaders of this organization and country.
