Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

North Fulton Community Charities addresses the needs of economically-vulnerable residents in northern Fulton County, residents who are frequently food insecure and housing burdened -- paying more than 30% of their monthly take-home pay on rent -- and unemployed or underemployed -- making less than the area's median household wage, often at or under the poverty line. These residents, our neighbors, are single-parent families, immigrant families, aging adults with chronic illnesses or disabilities, seniors on fixed incomes, and other underserved populations. The challenge for these residents is living in a predominantly affluent community with stretched financial resources. Affordable housing is scarce and, although there is an abundance of high-end restaurants and specialty grocers in North Fulton, evidence of the area’s food insecurity is easily found in local schools. Within three-miles of our service center, half of elementary school students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

Goals & Strategy

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. To help ease hardship through financial assistance (rent and utilities), food, and clothing.

2. To foster financial stability in our community by providing no-cost ESL classes, pre-vocational education, and job coaching that lead to improved employment opportunities and increased income.

3. To provide access to in-house and partner resources that strengthen financial and housing stability. Resources include financial coaching, benefits screening, tax preparation, and referrals for child care, mental health services, transitional housing, and other supportive services. All resources are offered in Spanish and English at no cost to the participant.

The NFCC service delivery model incorporates prevention-based research and evidence-based practices to support housing stability. Employing a pragmatic approach – providing rental and utility assistance, food, and basic necessities – NFCC keeps families in their homes and averts the detrimental consequences of homelessness.

Not content to serve only in crisis situations, but instead envisioning a community of self-sufficient families, NFCC offers classes to remove economic barriers and improve the lives of those we serve. NFCC helps families move toward financial stability and self-sufficiency by offering free adult basic education and life skill classes including English literacy, GED test preparation, financial and computer literacy, workforce readiness and more.

Our capabilities for meeting goals are based on the support that is provided by donors, supporters, volunteers and staff. Together, with the help of our community, we are making a difference in the lives of low income families living in North Fulton.
