Central Outreach & Advocacy Center

servewithbellsAssisting the Poor and Homeless
In 1997, Central opened the Outreach Center as an extension of its programs to aid Atlanta's impoverished and homeless residents. In 2002, the center expanded its mission to include advocacy—organizing efforts to develop and promote fair and compassionate public policies that address economic injustice.

Central Outreach & Advocacy Center (COAC) is maintained as an independent, non-profit agency separate from the church, and is administered by an independent board and staff. You can find out more about the center's history and current work by visiting its website.

Sunday, November 9, 2014 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Monday Night Brewing

Plan to join us on Sunday, November 9 from 3 to 6pm at Monday Night Brewing (670 Trabert Ave, Atlanta) to support the work of Central Outreach & Advocacy Center! There will be great beer, delicious food, good music, brewery tours, trivia and prizes, and a chance to learn more about Central OAC's important work.
 
We had a blast at this event last year, and it's the perfect opportunity to introduce your friends and family to the transformative work Central OAC is doing to help reduce homelessness in Atlanta.

Bring yourself, tell your friends, and get ready to have a great time for an even better cause. We hope to see you there!
