Corporate Responsibility Connection

Mental health affects us all- at work and in our communities. Let’s make a change together!

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a self-regulating business model that helps a company be socially accountable to itself, its stakeholders, and the public.

Responsibility, humanity, and social impact are now more entrenched than ever in the corporate sector.

Community Friendship, Inc. has been a staple part of the Midtown Atlanta community for 50 years, serving thousands of men and women who have diagnosed mental illnesses.

CFI welcomes, and offers an array of community orientated services and activities that many companies, organizations and corporations can take part in.

For more information, or to schedule a presentation at your office, please contact Rene Bazel, Director of Development and Communications, at (404) 875-0381 x301, or email at

Below are some activities that could be implemented by large groups who want to make a change in the communities where they are vested.

All Hands On Deck

Event/Activity Staff

Come volunteer at one of our events, whether it’s by joining an event planning committee or assisting with set up, serving, or breakdown.

The Open Window of Opportunity

Career/Personal Development

Come volunteer your gifts and talents by helping consumers develop useful skills that will help compliment their life transformation. We welcome assistance with computer skills development, tutoring support, banking and money management, culinary skills, art, health and wellness; you name it!

A Community of Friends

Monetary Special Events

Many of our consumers may not have the opportunity to experience a party or gathering. Help instill hope a feeling of community, by hosting events such as a catered breakfast or barbeque, a collaborative monthly birthday party, or a special event.

The Ultimate Care Packages

Assist our consumers by providing them with basic daily needs in care packages that include perishable food items, personal care items, toiletries, cleaning materials, and more. Gather up a group of friends, colleagues, and family members to create these care packages with the opportunity to feel the special gift of giving to others. Help make their transition easier to self-sufficiency and independence by providing the needed necessities to get started on the journey to recovery.
