A vast majority of members served by CFI are living below federally defined poverty levels, and many have no income at all. CFI is a vital part of the downtown Atlanta community and serves vulnerable individuals that many others ignore. We receive support from the state of Georgia and we accept referrals from a wide range of community agencies who know that CFI will help where others will not. Without CFI, adults with mental health needs languish in jail, spend time in overcrowded hospitals, or sleep on the streets. CFI’s outreach is a last chance for many who have become hopeless.
