Annual Fund Campaign 2013
Help Us Empower Families
Did you know, in Georgia, a minimum-wage employee must work 84 hours a week in order to afford the fair-market rent for a two-bedroom apartment?
Shayna P., mother of three, is one example. She found herself on the brink of homelessness and no where to turn. She had no “Plan B.” She considered living in her car.
The needs of the working-poor population continue to grow. An estimated 74,000 Cobb County residents are living below the poverty line (which is $23,050 annually for a family of four). Families make up the largest segment of the homeless population in Cobb, and are the fastest growing homeless segment in the country.
Your gift through the 2013 Annual Fund Campaign can help prevent homelessness, keeping clients like Shayna and her children off the street or from sleeping in a car.
