Dogwood Forest loves service work. We service our residents, and we absolutely love giving back! We also love when others do as well! We recently hosted students from Mount Paran Christian School. Students from multiple grade levels volunteered at Dogwood Forest of Acworth as part of their first ever Family Day of Service.
