Join us as we launch new programs in response to COVID-19!

Mission:

The Martin Luther King Sr. Community Resources Collaborative works daily to disrupt generational poverty by creating sustainable pathways to economic mobility and empower disenfranchised citizens through social justice reform.

Vision:

It is our vision to improve the quality of life in the community at large through an active, effective, credible social and family support network.

We have created a one-stop-shop resources complex with local, state and national government and social service organizations with a focus on stability, self-sufficiency, and economic mobility through five overlapping lenses: family stability, emotional well-being, educational achievement, financial stability, and employment.

Our Impact:

In 2020, we served 3,092 individuals. In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have dispersed nearly $400,000 and these funds have enabled us to prevent 78 evictions, make 80 additional late rent payments, make 4 mortgage payments, reconnect 57 utility services, make 9 transportation-related payments, and send 500 gift cards in direct cash transfers to those most in need.

Going forward, especially at a time when people's livelihoods have been disrupted by the economic impacts of COVID-19, we are striving to increase our involvement in workforce development programming in the metro-Atlanta area. We believe that lasting, sustainable anti-poverty work needs to address professional development and skills-based learning as well as provide direct assistance. We are currently developing partnerships with IT and technology firms in the metro-Atlanta area to create a new workforce development program in which we will certify low-income and unemployed individuals with in-demand skills that will place them in high-paying careers. We seek to expand our curriculum of courses that can be offered to clients and to deliver these courses digitally, so that they can reach everyone in the community who could benefit. Join us in serving the community by empowering families, moving them to economic mobility, and ending generational poverty!
