2023 GRANT RECIPIENT
Covenant Community, Inc.
Covenant Community, Inc.'s (CCI) mission is to serve as the leading addiction recovery life-stabilization program for men, families and communities. CCI offers programs to help men suffering from addiction and homelessness to maintain sobriety, secure employment, and obtain stable housing after treatment to enable them to return to their families and the community as productive citizens.
Since its inception, CCI has treated over 1,000 men in its residential community treatment program. CCI's community treatment program arm, Recovery Resources of Atlanta Midtown (RRAM), averages approximately 1,500 visits per month by CCI residents, non-residents in Metro-Atlanta, families and others touched by addiction.
AMM awarded a $100,000 grant to CCI to fund the purchase of two gently pre-owned 15-passenger Ford Transit Vans with the latest safety features and custom van wraps, as well as to fund insurance, maintenance and fuel expenses. Our grant will increase the availability of essential transportation for residents to attend job interviews, family visits, medical appointments, social gatherings and community-based recovery meetings. With two vans, CCI will also be able to serve the homeless community in Metro Atlanta through its partnerships with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Fountain of Hope, through which CCI residents distribute food to others experiencing homelessness.
