Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency is a wonderful organization that helps homeless people thrive in life. I recently volunteered at Cafe 458 and prepared and served lunch to about 60 homeless men and women. I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff, the volunteers the people I served all made it an enjoyable day. I will definetely be back to volunteer again. I have told so many people about my experience and they have since signed up to volunteer. Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency is doing wonders for the people they serve each day!
