Review for Georgia Avenue Community Ministry, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Georgia Avenue Community Ministry continues to be an organization that provides individual and families with support that empowers and reminds members of their intrinsic worth. The programs of GACM create partnerships between volunteers, staff, and members that highlights the gifts, strenghts and talents of every individual involved and creates a mutually supportive environment where everyone has something to offer. No only have the organization faithfully served the Atlanta community for well over 20 years, but is now having an increased impact around the country as organizations are beginning to learn of their work and replicate the GACM Model. I look forward to seeing the ways the influence of the organization continues to tranform the way many individuals and organizations serve their communities.

Review for Georgia Avenue Community Ministry, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was introduced to the work of Georgia Avenue Community Ministry while working as a social worker in Atlanta. It was immediately evident to me that this organization used a model of support extremely unique in regards to addressing hunger. The Food Cooperative model of GACM provides food security, community building, and participant empowerment and dignity through a process that holistically supports individuals and families. The members of GACM are not only provided with food, but are also provided space to use their gifts, talents, and resources for the betterment of other participants, the group at large, and the organization. This model breaks down the helper/helped paradigm and allows everyone to give and everyone to receive.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I spoke to a coop group as a representative of another organization.
