Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency (ACSS) was formed in 2010 through a merger of two long standing nonprofit agencies – Atlanta Enterprise Center and Samaritan House of Atlanta – to embrace a stronger vision for breaking the cycle of homelessness among individuals and families within the Greater Atlanta area. Our mission is to empower homeless individuals to achieve economic self sufficiency and their ultimate potential to thrive in life. Our programs include CareerWorks, a job readiness training and placement program; Veterans Employment Assistance Program, a targeted initiative aimed at helping veterans re-integrate into the workforce; Café 458, a life stabilization program and restaurant for homeless adults with mental and physical disabilities; the ACSS/Gateway Recovery Program, a transitional housing program that provides substance abuse treatment to adult men in recovery; and an 8-Week Computer Training Program. Additionally, ACSS operates social enterprise ventures – Café 458 Weekend Brunch and CST Janitorial Services – which provide unrestricted revenue for the agency and job opportunities for homeless individuals.
