How our service works
Georgia Works! the goal is to take chronically homeless men and help them overcome their barriers, change them as human beings, making them productive and self-sufficient individuals.
Each Georgia Works! participant is housed at our facility for up to a year while they participate in transitional work (earning $7.40/hr for 30+ hours per week). All participants renounce dependency and remain drug and alcohol-free. Personal support, case management, and workforce training is offered throughout the program. We also provide AA/NA Classes, GED classes, support in obtaining a driver’s licenses, help setting up a bank account, and life skill preparation courses.
