City of Refuge provided my family with a comfortable place to live, great food service, daycare for my chldren, counseling, and opportunities to prepare myself for life after living in Eden Village. The staff were helpful and my family is doing great now. Thanks to all the people who work at City of Refuge for caring for me and my kids.

I resided at COR for a year and received no help outside of a place for myself and my children to rest in the evenings. The onsite case managers were very rude, insensitive, and overall uncaring unless someone they needed to impress was around. Donations meant for families in need were taken home by staff or tossed out( select staff members made sure to allow families to go through donations... other staff members... not so much). The facilities were unclean consistently covered in bodily fluids, menstrual..., and feces. After being interviewed to be a client at COR I was happy because I thought I was would receive the assistance that I needed as long as I was willing to help myself as well. As far as job assistance: I obtained my own job by my own means, Childcare assistance I also obtained alone. Transportation I did on my own as well. Nothing is as promised at COR/ Eden Village. I believe that volunteers and donors should actually sit and privately converse with the residents there so that they can actually see where their money and donations are going.

City of Refuge is an amazing organization in the heart of Atlanta. They serve individuals and families experiencing poverty. Each year Peachtree Christian Church invites other denominations in our congregation to volunteer at City of Refuge for More Hands for God Day in October. We have 200 people who provide a variety of services in partnership with City of Refuge. Activities include hosting a festival for children, a medical clinic, providing flu vaccinations, assembling hygiene kits, organizing donated food in the warehouse, cleaning up the neighborhood, landscaping, and preparing and sharing a meal. The staff of City of Refuge has been most helpful in planning this day, and always provides education and guidance to our volunteers. It is a great opportunity to work with City of Refuge for one day as a volunteer, and a humbling thought that the staff and many other volunteers provide these services 365 days a year.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I worked with two children who attend the afterschool program at City of Refuge. They receive tutoring, homework help, love, recreation, Hip Hop classes provided by the Atlanta Balet. They have a great time in the afterschool program and really spoke highly of the staff.
