Rachel M. Ewald
Rachel Ewald, a Cobb County resident who is very involved with her community, is the founder of the Foster Care Support Foundation, an organization which serves foster children and their foster parents. Donated clothing is given free of charge to foster children. Operational since 2000, this nonprofit had its start in a trailer contributed by the Roswell United Methodist Church. As the donations increased, more space was needed, and the organization moved to a small store-like space. Such a setting encourages parents and children to browse and "shop" among the many new or only gently used items rather than to feel the part of hand-me-down recipients. This "for free" clothing center is the only known resource for at-risk foster children in Georgia.
