Family Relations Program, Inc (FRP)

In 2006, the agency provided direct services to 742 individuals.
Child sexual abuse is a crime of secrecy and shame, and FRP works to stop this silence within the family and the community. FRP's safe atmosphere makes it easier to talk about the devastating effects caused by the sexual abuse of a child. It is within FRP's "healing community" that our families receive support and understanding and learn that they are not alone in their struggles.

Zachariah's Way

P.O. Box 5565
Gainesville, GA 30504
Phone: 678-643-6781
David Glover, President
Zachariah’s Way is a support organization of caring people that enables churches, both as individual believers and corporately as a local Body of Christ, to become more involved in ministering to people with special needs and their families. Zachariah’s Way provides information, resource material, and networking services to persons desiring to help these special people. We do this by speaking/preaching in churches and conducting very practical “training” seminars based on clear Biblical precepts. Our focus is the church – the average person sitting in church pews, who is totally unaware of this world of special needs, the needs of families all around them, and, most importantly, the tremendous blessing God has in store for them when they choose to get involved with these special people and families. Established on the truths and commands of scripture, our mission is to be the arms of Jesus in caring for the special needs child, adolescent, and adult, along with their families, by informing others of the need, enabling personal and corporate involvement, providing resources, and being true friends as we minister.
