I have been an intern at Catholic Charities Atlanta (CCA) for 7 months. It is the absolute best position that I have ever had and I am very thankful that I am able to be a part of such a wonderful organization. I cannot begin to describe how much of an impact CCA makes in the lives of many people in Georgia, as well as in my life. From the moment you walk into any CCA office you feel welcome and that the people from CCA truly want to help and make a difference in the lives of their clients. I have seen first hand the clients that have been assisted by CCA and how it has changed their lives for the better. CCA is, without a doubt, one of the best organizations! I will always support Catholic Charities Atlanta!
