Hello Everybody

I just wanted to know if there was a program in Atlanta that helped newcomers to the city get on their feet for example find employment and help get them temporary housing while they were in search of an apartment or house. I believe that it is really hard for people to find a job in a city if they already don't live in the city. I was wondering if Atlanta had a program that kind of eased that difficulty by allowing people to live in temporary housing while they helped them search for employment. I know this maybe a long shot but I figured I would ask the question just to see if anybody might actually know of a program like that in ATL. Please let me know

The only program I heard like that in the Atlanta area in Travelers Aid.

Travelers Aid of Metro Atlanta

They helped my mom turn on her lights when we first moved to Atlanta.

Also I know at the DFCS offices they give away alot of large packets with career and housing choices for their patrons
