Mobile, Ala. – The Gulf Coast Family Center joined a dozen agencies during a check presentation from the Children’s Trust Fund of Alabama Tuesday, February 7, 2023. The group recognized each organization, including the Gulf Coast Family Center, as a 2022-2023 funding recipient, with GCFC receiving $425,000 in grant monies.
