Additionally, through the CARES Act funding from the city of Tucker, NETWorks provided $665,000 in direct support for fresh food, shelter, personal care items and financial assistance for utilities and rent or mortgage payments.

Its motto: NETWorks mission is to respond with the hospitality of Christ to the food and financial needs of residents and to partner with them to find long-term solutions to poverty.
