Have you ever met a former Man of HOPE?

 

Every time you have your tires rotated at the local tire shop or your oil changed locally, you’re probably in the presence of a former Man of HOPE.  Ever eaten at Corner Café, the Pub, Fire House, O'Charley, Steak and Shake - basically anywhere in Carrollton?  You’ve probably been served by a former Man of HOPE.  These successful men were only able to rejoin the workforce and transition back into their own homes and independent living because of donors like you.  

 

ACE programs are also possible because of donors like you.  

 

As a result of the Jobs for Life and Get That Job courses at ACE, our low-income neighbors are able to get and maintain jobs that pay a living wage and they love doing. When you give to Impact, you enable adults who have lived their entire lives without reading a book to read their first books and write their first letters.

DESERVE: free, wheelchair accessible transportation (taxi) for veterans

Veterans have free, wheelchair transportation to and from Tanner Medical Center & Trinka Davis VA Clinic.  

 

Your donations make it possible to run DESERVE and transport our local Veterans, like Mr. Lowery, who before DESERVE began was paying high taxi fares that he could not afford to get to his doctor appointments.  When you give to Impact West GA, you can be assured that your money is being used effectively and in a way that makes a maximum impact.  When you give to Impact West GA, you become a part of the Impact team.  Together, we can Impact West GA and make life changing differences in our neighbors’ lives.
