To support The Fresh Start Program.

The Resource Center ‘s mission is to empower struggling women and mothers by providing the education, training, access, and support they need to escape the cycle of generational poverty, build brighter futures, and initiate fresh starts for themselves and their families.  The Resource Center (TRC) serves residents in the Greater Atlanta Metro Area.  Programs include Academic Coaching for Students, Healthy Resource for Children and Families, Little Women Rites of Passage, Moms Run Georgia, and Stand Down for Veterans.  TRC’s Fresh Start Program, a new program about to enter its “pilot phase”, will provide expedited, effective job training, career development, and job placement services that transition working mothers from poverty-level jobs, to self-reliant, living wage jobs.
