The Georgia Justice Project provides the Atlanta Community with something very unique: legal services combined with social services and employment support for indigent individuals accused of a crime.
As their case is being resolved, we assign each client and their family to a member of our social work staff, who offer a range of counseling, job training, and referral services. Our goal is to ensure that our clients’ life circumstances change so living crime-free lives is not only possible but actively supported. Should our clients have to serve time in prison, we don not abandon them. Rather, we communicate regularly and visit several times a year. We also help arrange for families to visit so support networks are maintained.
Our employment support help clients identify employment leads through using the JobView Kiosk, application and resumé writing skills, and interview skills.
