Hiring Well, Doing Good
Georgia is ranked 44th in the nation in terms of poverty with a poverty rate of 18.3%. There are 3.8 million people in Georgia with a criminal record and 10.4% of teens age 16-19 are not in school and not working. Many of these individuals are ready to flourish if given the opportunity.

Join us Monday, March 27th for our event to learn how businesses are partnering with non-profits to employ the jobless, while improving their bottom line.
