Sandy Springs resident George Northrop was hired in September to lead the effort as part of CAC’s mission to actively help clients work toward self-sufficiency.

The Career Center will offer clients a wide range of services from educational resources, access to training and certification programs, and develop partnerships with local employers. Information and to volunteer: George.Northrop@ourcac.org.

CAC helps residents of Sandy Springs and Dunwoody facing emergency situations meet the basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing. CAC assists individuals and families experiencing unexpected financial crisis from job loss or other income loss, illness, medical emergency, divorce, or catastrophic situations like fire or flood.

Immediate goals are to stabilize crisis situations and prevent homelessness and hunger. CAC promotes the long-term goal of self-sufficiency through additional programs and referrals.
