StreetWise is a nonprofit organization committed to helping people who are living below the poverty level get the professional help and care they need to rebuild their lives and function independently. Rebuilding lives does not just come through handouts; it comes through commitment and involves a process. StreetWise Georgia is committed to: Meeting Needs The first step toward rebuilding is in meeting immediate needs with tangible assistance. StreetWise aids clients with food, clothing and basic household items by appointment at our facility, 10AM-2PM on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. We also partner with Atlanta Community Food Bank to hold a Mobile Food Pantry on the second Saturday of each month. Pre-registered guests never have to get out of their cars. StreetWise is able to provide these items through donations from the community and is blessed to distribute over 1 million lbs. of food to over 5,000 families! With help from community members like you, we hope to exceed this and our goal is to reach many more families.
