This non-profit has provided over 7,500 people with their first job assignment. Giving preference to those who have recently experienced homelessness, veterans, and returning citizens from prison, First Step Staffing is expanding from its base in Atlanta to other cities. Its model is successful and closer to a for-profit in being able to meet its own overhead. Many of the jobs it finds for its clients turn into permanent offers. This enterprise is empowering many lives.
