Kelsey McCarty, Program Advocate, is a Spring 2021 graduate of Georgia State University’s Master’s in Social Work program, with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and sociology from Georgia College and State University. With an innate passion for serving others, social work was the natural career path for her. Her background in case management services for individuals experiencing homelessness, working with children, and strengthening community partnerships lead her to Family Promise of Gwinnett. After meeting with the team, she quickly knew in her heart this was the place she wanted to learn, serve, and grow. She is so excited to expand on the skills and knowledge she’s gained through her experiences and feels that the sky is truly the limit for Family Promise and its ability to uplift, transform, and unify our community.
In her spare time, she enjoys listening to true crime podcasts as well as a wide range of music, spending quality time with friends and family, and exploring outdoors. As a new Gwinnett County resident, she is looking forward to becoming more involved in the community and finding additional volunteer and fellowship opportunities.
