The Mission of Community Concerns, Inc. is to engage those experiencing homelessness or at risk of experiencing homelessness and facilitate their movement to permanent housing and employment with a livable wage.

Post it, tweet it, share it. The more people you tell, the more help we can receive.
Community Concerns, Inc. is a private, non-profit 501 (c) (3) agency. It had its beginning as an outreach ministry of the Chapel of Christian Love Missionary Baptist Church from 1983-1988 in an effort to provide daily meals for the homeless community in Atlanta. In 1988, Community Concerns incorporated and began Odyssey III Supportive Services Center. This program was designed to provide not only meals, but transitional housing supportive services and case management, to assist clients in the transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Odyssey III takes a holistic client-centered approach to service delivery and goal planning with the client. Odyssey III provides an excellent option for those consumers seeking more permanent housing and stability in their lives.

More than a handout, the ODYSSEY III Program through Community Concerns, Inc.
provides a hand. The ethos of the ODYSSEY III Program is inspired by the model of trials and adventures of the Greek mythological character, Odysseus.  According to the epic poem "The Odyssey", he and his crew struggled for more than 10 years after the Trojan War before returning to the comfort and security of their homes.
