The Center for Family ResourcesMarietta, GA
The Center for Family Resources is on a mission to move people to self-sufficiency through financial stabilization, housing and education.
Executive Director: Melanie Kagan
We are a Cobb County-based organization that prevents childhood homelessness and supports families on the path to stability and success. 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.

Direct Services provide financial assistance for rent, food, prescriptions, transportation (bus tickets), and holiday programs to stabilize families in crisis and prevent homelessness. Case management is provided for each family receiving financial assistance to help them assess their circumstances and address the issues leading to their crisis situation.
Housing Services provide short-term (30 day) and rapid re-housing programs for homeless and near-homeless families. Homeless clients work intensely with a case manager on a housing plan to return to permanent housing with a lease in their name. Supportive services including assistance with child care, employment and education programs, food, and life skills help develop housing stability and greater self-sufficiency.
Employment/Education Services provides supportive services to homeless and low-income residents to increase their economic capacity through the following services: job readiness and work maturity skills, financial management counseling and life management skills classes.
