Who We Support
We have solutions just for you
We get it, we’re not necessarily for everyone, and that’s okay. We provide services that are tailored to individuals who need an advocate and support system right now.
Every year, nearly 700,000 people are released from American prisons, and an estimated 9 million are released from jail. According to the National Institute of Justice, almost two-thirds of them are arrested again within three years. Our services are here to help you avoid reentering the Georgia penal system.
With a deep commitment to empowering veterans, providing employment opportunities, and promoting excellence, GVS has developed our veterans program to bridge the gap between military service and civilian employment.
We understand the problems of applying for employment and having your family weigh in the balance. GVS has connected with several local resources that can aid you while you’re looking for employment.
While we have a heavy emphasis on aiding students, we recognize that there are some eager and empathetic employers looking for certified and committed talent. GVS offers both opportunities for those willing to partner with us.
