During the 2011 -- 2012 school year, 2246 Gwinnett school children were reported homeless. It's a shocking statistic that isn't limited to our county; in fact, according to recent reports, nearly 1.6 million (1 in 45) children are homeless in the United States, and over 75,000 individuals experience homelessness in Georgia alone. It's estimated that 60% of the homeless population in Gwinnett County are children and 50% of these kids are under the age of 6.

Imagine a community where everyone lives in a decent, affordable house and all children have a real place to call home. Habitat for Humanity, ArtWorks! Gwinnett and the City of Norcross believe that art can be used to convey powerful messages, and people can work together to create positive social change. As a result, Norcross is one of the organizers and the hosting city of Doors to Homes & Hope, an outdoor public art project benefitting Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity | ReStore and ArtWorks! Gwinnett. Artists, civic groups, school children and citizens across Gwinnett County have painted over 145 doors being exhibited throughout the County.

These Doors of Art are for sale online at www.gwinnettrestore.org.
