4.) Adhere to our Core of Values: Core values guide all of us at Sober Living America, both as a company and as individuals. First, we value honesty and integrity. Practicing honesty with our families, co-workers, residents, and customers gains a reputation of integrity for Sober Living America and its individual employees. We strive also to grow in faith as trusted servants, remembering always that God is in charge. We value humility, knowing too well how egos disrupt the recovery process. Perseverance is another essential tool for recovery and business. Only those who do not give up will attain the ultimate rewards. Sober Living America believes in seeking fulfillment through community service as well. We must always be ready to give to others, grateful for all we have been given.

Sober Living America honors these values while carrying out various responsibilities. As a company, we provide appropriate salaries and benefits for our employees. Good workers deserve just compensation. We have the responsibility of leading our residents to the 12 Step rooms and to lead them into a growing relationship with God. Sober Living America depends on the success of the residents to stay in existence. Therefore we promise to strive to create irresistible facilities and irresistible programs for our residents. Similarly, we always do our utmost to maintain good relationships with the individuals, community partners, and agencies that refer our clients to us. These invaluable resources deserve our respect and attention. To continue operation, Sober Living America must be good stewards of their resources and strive to generate profits and property cash reserves. We will work for efficiency and economy while maintaining the quality of our service. Finally, as individuals we have responsibilities to our God, our families, and our own recovery.

Please allow us to introduce ourselves. Sober Living America is a community service 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that serves homeless and destitute individuals seeking help with substance abuse. Most of us have known someone affected by addiction – it affects the entire family. But when funds are low or without insurance, where can they go for help? Usually by now, the family is stressed and promises have been broken. It is a sad story we are all familiar with.
Since 1994, Sober Living America and their staff have been there for the families suffering in our community. We have served over 50,000 families. We are located in Georgia and Florida providing housing, food, recovery, and work development – regardless of their financial condition.

We have made a bold promise to the general public — 100% of their donations would go directly to the field for housing and resources for families suffering from substance abuse. We'd find another way to cover our operating expenses.
Therefore we depend on private donors, foundations, sponsors, and program services to cover everything from staff salaries to basic office systems to office rent and supplies. Our donors are dedicated to our cause. Their investment fuels our long-term mission, our ability to operate as an organization and our mission to use 100% of public donations to go directly to families in need.
If you are a business owner, please join other businesses and become a community service partners. Our partners not only help with donations, but they work directly with people by offering internship and jobs. You will find eager and willing individuals excited about serving your organization. We would welcome meeting with you to discuss how you can become a partner. If you have any questions or need additional information, contact us at 404-634-4974 and visit our website at www.soberlivingamerica.org.

We have over 150 beds to provide Housing, Recovery, Spiritual & Work Development in Atlanta & Jacksonville.
