Agencies provide opportunities, clothing assistance and more for Atlanta Georgia area families. The aid is focused on low-income persons and it can help them become more self-sufficient and confident by offering family stability and more.
The programs offered by each clothing closet will vary, and depend heavily on donations from the community. Some of what is offered includes coats, shoes, and supplies for students. Certain clothing closets may also have items for infants or babies including formula, free diapers, and food. A special focus is on providing Christmas and holiday gifts and toys for children.
Locations are across De Kalb, Fulton, and other regions in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area. Not only will they distribute or sell clothing at a low cost to the needy, but many may provide vouchers for free items. Some centers also operate thrift stores for the general public.
While not as common, some of the clothing closets can also help with other emergency basic needs, such as expenses and bills including utilities or housing. That type of help is very limited though and comes with restrictions.
Concerted Services Inc. is a leading non-profit community action organization in Georgia. The agency offers the unemployed, low income, and people struggling with an extensive amount of aid and financial support, including information on free new or gently used clothing, uniforms, work attire, and more. Job training and career services are offered too. Some direct assistance is offered, and other is provided by referrals. Also apply for public assistance such as food stamps or LIHEAP at these agencies.
