Greater Works Vocational Discipleship Program’s mission is to take on Southwest Atlanta’s epidemic of recidivism by providing mentorship and skills training to men who are homeless, ex-offenders, and unemployed.
Greater Works Vocational Discipleship Program is specifically tailored to challenge the vicious cycle of hopelessness by providing unemployed inner-city men employment opportunities through spiritual discipleship and job training. This initiative develops programs and opportunities to assist the homeless, ex-offenders, and other unemployed men in the South Atlanta and Lakewood communities with basic employment skills to equip them to improve their standard of living and position themselves for long-term success.
