We're currently viewed as a "food pantry" in the community. While that is a major program we provide our clients, our focus is on client's gaining self-sufficiency by utilizing our training programs and referral services. We'd like talking points focused on getting this message out and overcoming the "food pantry" perception.
Funding has slowed recently due to being pinned as a "food pantry". We're hoping our staff and volunteers can use this messaging guideline when sharing our organization with friends and family to better communicate our goals and operations.
The Mission of StreetWise Georgia is to offer the necessary physical, emotional, mental and spiritual tools to help people stabilize their lives, improve their environment, and move out of a state of dependency into a state of well-being and self-sufficiency.
