Georgia Works! was founded 7 years agowith the hope of helping men that were homeless and returing form jail or prison regain their dignity, and become self-sufficent taxpayers. They can't do it alone. Believing that every life has value and can be restored given the right mentorship and environment we work with men for a 6 -12 month period and through intensive case management, couseling and therapy, lots of classes and work we help them overcome the barriers and bad habit that have kept them from becoming productive citizens.
In our 7 years ov existance w ehave helped over 800 men regain their dignity and they are now leading a productive lifestyle. over 90% have been restored to the lives of their children and families. They all leave with a full-time job with an average starting wage of $12.50/hr and an apartment to live in.
Studies doneby Georgia Tech's Scheller School of business show that for every dollar invested in Georgia Works! a $6-$11 return is realized by the community in reduced recidivism cost and a savings in healthcare costs.
Please help us continue this much needed work in our community?
