Review for Atlanta Center For Self Sufficiency Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency (ACSS) is helping to empower homeless individuals to achieve economic self sufficiency. Through ACSS CareerWorks programs, participants receive all the resources a homeless person needs to plan and carry out a successful job search. The result? Nearly 70% percent of our graduates find employment within 3 to 4 months!

ACSS is also cutting edge in their approach to development. In keeping with their mantra of self-sufficiency, significant portions of the organization's funding is earned through social enterprise. Cafe 458 serves Sunday brunch with all proceeds going to ACSS. And, CST Cleaning Services provides program graduates an opportunity to work and build job experience. CST Cleaning Services cleans offices, restaurants and outdoor grounds. They have some impressive accounts including the Governor's Offices! And, interestingly, though not exclusively for veterans, all current ACSS CST team members are veterans.
