The mission of The IMPACT! Group is to transform lives and strengthen communities through quality housing solutions.
The IMPACT! Group is a nonprofit housing assistance agency that serves the residents of metro Atlanta. Our organization was established in 1992 and today operates two complementing programs that help families of all income levels and backgrounds. The IMPACT! Transitional Housing Program helps homeless families achieve sustainable, quality housing and remain permanently out of homelessness. Our program is one of the largest in Gwinnett County and assists 22 homeless families with children at any one time. The program utilizes professional case managers to provide each family with subsidized housing, intensive case management, and a variety of supportive services such as child care assistance, financial education, and career building counseling. To date, over 90 percent of the families that graduate our program remain independent of assistance a year later.
Building upon our Transitional Housing Program, The IMPACT! Homeownership Center is designed to meet the needs of first-time homebuyers and residents in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure. As a HUD-Certified Housing Counseling Agency, the center today helps prevent foreclosures in Gwinnett County and greater Atlanta through group classes and free individual counseling sessions. The center also provides housing counseling, down payment assistance, and financial counseling services to first-time home buyers, current homeowners, and the general public in Gwinnett County and northeast Georgia.
Since the founding of The IMPACT! Group, the organization has pioneered new private-public partnerships to better serve the residents of greater Atlanta. Awarded the D. Scott Hudgens Award by the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce in 2010. The IMPACT! Group regularly works with a broad range of lenders, housing professionals, and community leaders to advocate for our clients.
We take our mission seriously - to transform lives and strengthen communities by providing quality housing solutions. The IMPACT! Group pursues that mission today by using our resources to holistically help families with different backgrounds and different housing needs. Our transitional housing services, homebuyer education, foreclosure prevention counseling, and financial education services create a continuum of care within the housing field that is unmatched in our community. We hope that you will join us as we seek to make greater Atlanta a better place for everyone!
