Program???? No..

You find job 1st, then figure out where you are going to live, then move yourself & family here. And you pay for it yourself ( unless you are in a IN demand job and you can get you employer to pay for it Low chance of that occuring).

You might want to re-post into the Atlanta sub-forum College Park is better handled in Atlanta group.

read the http://www.city-data.com/forum/atlanta/847517-moving-atlanta-soon-read-first.html

and cut/paste the 1st item into your post.

If you can put in specific question most of the time you will get a answer. A general one like where should I move to, etc, will generally get ignored.

NO. GA is a Red State and doesn't have very good social service programs and much support for those in need at all. Maryland would be far more generous than GA, and that should worry you. GA is a place where you need to be self supporting from the start.

I love the euphemisms and blaming it on "red state" politics. "Generous".... as if the State of Maryland or the State of Georgia is some rich uncle. The people of these states work hard and pay taxes. The state then sends their money if you qualify for one of the "programs" that provides transfer payments to people unable to provide for themselves. So-called "blue states" like Maryland just throw around more of their citizens' money, whereas so-called "red states" like Georgia are a little more careful about how they confiscate money from the productive to give to the unproductive.

I'll be the one person to say it with less political correctness....If you cannot support yourself, please don't come to our state and expect that the taxpayers of Georgia will support you.

First of all, College Park is not a good area.

If you want to make a better life for you and your kids, moving to another state isn't the answer, getting an education and a good-paying job is.

With all that being said, Atlanta is NOT the place for you to come. With any place you need to come with a job offer or a job transfer. As others have already said, there are no programs to assist out of towners trying to get on their feet. There are no programs for residents, much less programs for anyone who isn't already here. One of the the big problems with Atlanta is that so many people came here for better opportunity, thinking they would just be able to walk into good jobs with no skills or education and get good, yet affordable housing. This just isn't true.

There are very few jobs here and Atlanta is a city of highly-educated people. If you don't have the academic and professional experience to compete with the well-educated people already here who can't find work, you can pretty much forget it.

If you are African-American, this is not the mecca for blacks people claim it is unless again, you can come here with a good paying-job. Just based on what I hear in your post, you will be struggling here as well. You will find yourself living in bad neighborhoods with poor schools, as GA schools are lowly-ranked and the areas with the good schools are very expensive. Things have only gotten worse since the recession.

Stay where you are and go to school. Apply to colleges with student family housing and work a part time job and use your financial aid to pay for your school housing. If you want to relocate, go to a place where you can go to college and live on campus with your kids.

GA doesn't have programs or incentives to help single mothers relocate. GA only has programs and spends tax payer money help corporations relocate.

It's funny how people immediately accuse you of being on the public dole but the same people fully support corporations being on the public dole. Corporate welfare. Whether jobs are created or companies are beneficial to the area or not, as long as it helps some executives profit, it's gotta be good.
