  • Community Job Connection Impacts Local Communities

    Flipper Temple Apartments

    The Community Job Connection visits many apartment communities throughout the Westside and Atlanta, offering job training and job opportunities to residents. Flipper Temple Apartments is one of those communities. Flipper Temple Apartments, located on Abner Terrace off of Hollywood Road, has residents that range from young adults to senior citizens. After talking to Integrity Case Manager Judy McDaniels and discovering what the Community Job Connection could do for the community, Community Manager Ronta Davis agreed to have the mobile units come by. The CJC has had a positive impact on Flipper Temple Apartments. “It’s given our community a little hope,” Davis said. “We have high school-aged men who are looking for something to get into positive, and just don’t know how to do it. When the Job Connection came through, it gave them the ability to start getting job training and put them in a situation where they have somewhere to go and something to do and something to focus on.” Davis said he enjoys having the Community Job Connection and its staff come to his community. “When they come, I’m excited. Our residents seem to be enjoying it and just happy for the ability to get some training and go forth in their life.”   Villages at Carver Another community the Community Job Connection frequents is the Villages at Carver in the South Atlanta. Villages at Carver is a larger mixed-income community, made up of families, college students, and senior citizens. At the Villages at Carver, if you are an abled-bodied person between the ages of 18 and 61, you must fulfill a work requirement of 20 hours of employment per week. Because of this requirement, the Community Job Connection benefits everyone in the community, according to Community Engagement Manager Alexei Stokes. Stokes said that she was looking for an organization to help with job training and job placement within Villages at Carver when Integrity Case Manager Judy McDaniel told her about the Community Job Connection. “I was looking for an organization that would do exactly what Integrity is doing, assisting our residents, being able to have face-to-face interaction with them, because sometimes our residents need a little bit more support, versus just being able to access [job resources] online,” Stokes said. Having accessibility to jobs during a pandemic is an enormous benefit, especially since many people lost their jobs. “It was encouraging to our residents and helped alleviate some of the fear of not being able to find a job during a pandemic,” Stokes said. “You all are on site and saying ‘We have all these resources,’ so I think for many of our residents it’s definitely a blessing.”

  • Integrity Families Benefit from Toy Drive

    On December 20th, House of Shimmer, Shimmer Elite Extensions, Bambi & Scrappy of VH1, and Dazzle Me Parties organized and hosted a toy drive so that various families in the community could more fully enjoy the Christmas holiday. Five Integrity job seekers were among the Westside community participants who received toys and other gifts for their children.

    Janice and her three children were one of the Integrity families who benefitted from the toy drive. “It was most definitely a wonderful warm feeling to know that my kids were going to have a beautiful Christmas after all, because it was truly a struggle trying to get everything they wanted,” Janice said. “In the end, my babies woke up with the biggest smiles on their faces.” Bambi of VH1 typically hosts a large Christmas Drive, but because of COVID-19, they scaled the event back. The safest way to host the toy drive was to set it up like a store, which allowed parents to “shop” for gifts for their children. “It was a blessing to be able to provide Christmas gifts, especially during such a tough year,” Jen Booth, one of the event organizers, said. “Seeing the children’s faces light up and the gratitude of the parents is something that will stay with me for a lifetime.”
