Working Together for Change
At WTFC, we believe that it is critical to think not only of ourselves but also of others. We are a student-led nonprofit that is creating a large student-network to help the homeless people in Atlanta. There is a lot of work being done by many organizations – but nothing really includes the students. We want to raise awareness about this problem among the students and find many more that also care about this issue.
The Immersion pillar works to provide our volunteers with a more realistic understanding of what it means to be homeless. These programs stress how to empathize with the homeless rather than just sympathize with them.
Homeless men and women are four times more likely than the average person to get sick. That’s why we place major emphasis on our medical initiatives.Several times throughout the year, we set up health camps and medical fairs in various locations throughout Georgia.
Social entrepreneurship is the implementation of sustainable, individualized solutions aimed at ending homelessness one person at a time. We provide scholarships, job training, and other targeted solutions.
