Community Service Orientation

 

Sweetwater Mission, Inc. has been active in Cobb County for 52 years. Starting as a small clothing and food distribution center in 1968 by four local churches, we now offer many programs to help disadvantaged, low-income and homeless families and individuals. We serve families and individuals in 3 Metro Atlanta Counties: Cobb, Douglas and Paulding. Last year we distributed an average of one million pounds of food, regardless of race, age, ethnicity, or religion. Our goal is to effectively assist our guests in overcoming the barriers commonly associated with poverty and help our client transition toward self-sufficiency.

Sweetwater Mission, as a non-profit charitable organization, utilizes volunteers and community service workers to provide these emergencies services to our neighbors who are at risk. We welcome volunteers, community service workers and value their time with us to help complete our Mission; we hope that our volunteers & community service workers have a rewarding and pleasant time with Sweetwater Mission.
