Gwinnett Village Community Alliance
Gwinnett Village, Atlanta’s global connection, merges home-town appeal with an international style.
Guiding the hometown community atmosphere, the Gwinnett Village Community Alliance (GVCA) leverages partnerships with local governments, businesses, schools, residents and nonprofit organizations to engage in programs that strengthen the local economy, enhance education, strengthen neighborhoods, and promote a rich arts and cultural community.
The Gwinnett Village Community Alliance is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that focuses on four major areas of work. GVCA works in tandem with the largest Community Improvement District (CID) in Georgia- Gwinnett Village CID - to bring together the community so everyone can participate in the revitalization of The Village.
One of GVCA's key programs is the Financial Services Center. In partnership with United Way, the Gwinnett Village Financial Services Center(GVFSC) is a unique one-stop shop that offers individuals opportunities and solutions that can lead to a financially secure future. GVFSC focuses on financial stability, career connections and entrepreneurship by increasing employment and homeownership, and decreasing personal debt.
