Central Outreach and Advocacy Center

2017 Fall General Grant

Grant Amount: $10,000

Grant Purpose: to provide ID services for men and women who do not have identification when they are released from prison; identification is required for employment and housing, and without these critical components the risk of recidivism is significantly increased. The unique partnership between Central OAC and Common Ground provides an opportunity for people recently released from prison to receive both vital services as well as pastoral care that acknowledges the specific needs and challenges of this community.

In Partnership With: Church of the Common Ground

Following Christ’s example and the tradition of The Episcopal Church, we partner with Episcopal communities in the Diocese of Atlanta by providing funding, leadership, and resources to enable Episcopalians to lift up people facing poverty and oppression and to achieve significant, long-lasting change in our communities.
