WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) visited the Centerville OneStop Shop—a local community center and health care provider that received $25 million in funding from the American Rescue Plan. The Congresswoman joined Gwinnett County Commission Chair Nicole Love Hendrickson, and OneStop Project Coordinator, Duane Tolson.
Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux said, “One of my first acts as a member of Congress was passing the American Rescue Plan, and I am proud of how Gwinnett County has invested the $181 million in funding we received in projects like OneStop Centerville. Too often, communities like South Gwinnett are left behind and are not given the resources they need to thrive, in our health system, our financial system, and our economy generally. That’s why this facility is so important – it will expand access to critical services in a part of our community that needs them.”
Background: The Centerville OnStop location is currently hosting a branch of the Gwinnett County Public Library, and will soon be expanding to include healthcare services, a View Point center, and a Head Start program. Centerville also has a space where agencies and nonprofits can set up field offices to provide services.
Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux lives with her family in Suwanee, Georgia, and represents Georgia’s 7th Congressional District in the 117th Congress. Carolyn is a strong advocate for affordable health care, and economic recovery that puts workers and small businesses first, and investing in her district’s world-class public education system and transportation infrastructure.
Georgia’s fast-changing 7th Congressional District includes portions of the northeast Atlanta metropolitan area, including portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties and cities Peachtree Corners, Berkeley Lake, Sugar Hill, Norcross, Cumming, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Snellville, Lilburn, Suwanee, Grayson, and Buford.
