MISSION STATEMENT: to transform lives, prevent recidivism and promote growth and lifelong structure.
WHO WE ARE: We are a dedicated 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit organization, focused on assisting individuals who've been incarcerated and are searching for a more fulfilling life as they transition back into society. Our mission is to use God’s love, mercy and grace to rebuild individuals' lives and help them contribute positively to society.
PROBLEM SUMMARY: There is an overwhelming number of people who are released from the prison system without any sense of guidance in terms of life skills, employment or home structure. In addition to employment stresses, they have a hard time transitioning successfully back into society. Without proper psychological and spiritual healing, these individuals may very well end up back in the prison system.
OUR SOLUTION: PEACE ATLANTA, INC. will house individuals who are nearing their release date and provide them with the key necessities for basic living. We will arrange resume preparations, as needed social skills lessons,as well as emotional and financial support services. We will prepare these individuals for potential interviews, assist with clothing needed for interview purposes and offer bible study sessions. (not mandated)
Transitional living refers to any type of living situation that is transitional. The primary purpose or mission of transitional living environments is temporary.
PEACE Atlanta, Inc, will assist residents with resume writing,interview preparation and interview attire. We may contact local employers and attend job fairs to help the resident obtain employment. Residents are expected to be employed within 15 business days of arrival.
Life skills are abilities needed to adapt to the challenges and changes of everyday life. Our goal is to help assure the resident that a more positive outlook will produce more positive results.
An assigned individual will be readily available to empower the resident, discuss mental health issues, promote overall wellness, education, and determine career goals.
PEACE Atlanta will provide the resident with a detailed budget form before the end of their term with our organization. We will outline day to day living expenses, savings accounts, life insurance, student loans, credit card debt and/or childcare expenses.
Lack of accountability is a lack of integrity.
