Food Pantry Open Third Saturday of Month from 10-12 (Plus Reg Hours M-Th: 10-12, 1-3)
Sherry Morris has served as the executive director of Fannin County Family Connection since May of 2014.
In an interview with the Georgia Family Connection Partnership, Sherry shared her ‘why.’ Sherry went through a divorce, lost health insurance, and was putting her life back together when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is a eight-year survivor now! Unable to meet travel and work demands, Sherry lost her job of nearly 30 years. She found herself a single mom, without a support system, without income, and in the throes of situational poverty.
"When the position opened at FCFC, I knew this was for me. Knowing how difficult everyday life situations can be gives me the strength and desire to do my best to help my struggling neighbors. Thinking of ways our Collaborative can become even more useful keeps me up at night. I wake up each morning with a glad spirit that I have the opportunity to serve. Aside from being a mother to two incredible children, this is the best job ever," said Sherry.
We are so honored to have Sherry leading Fannin County Family Connection!
