America’s homelessness crisis knows no bounds, while homelessness has increasingly become concentrated in America’s large cities.1 To that end, JoyJ’s newly formed Atlanta chapter hosted its first Outreach this weekend. A dozen Credit Suisse employees packed supplies and bags on Friday, and 22 volunteers rallied in 93 degree weather to distribute 80 bags on Saturday. The volunteers were shocked at the extent of homelessness in inner city Atlanta, and are eager to find solutions within the chapter and through new partnerships. We look forward to watching this chapter flourish!
