  • Organization Description

    We are a Cobb County-based organization that works exclusively to serve local families and individuals that are either homeless or in danger of becoming homeless. We believe in providing tailored, long-term supportive services to our clients. We aim to ensure that once they leave our program, they will have all the necessary skills, tools, and resources to be self-sufficient enough to never again need us, or any organization like us.
