How to Apply

Our process starts with an in-depth evaluation that assesses work history, technical skills, and living situations and identifies other barriers to employment. After an in-person orientation and a one-on-one meeting with a job coach, clients are matched with an employer and placed in a job within 48-72 hours. Through partnerships with public transportation and Enterprise Rideshare, we provide clients with transportation to and from work. The First Step team also coordinates closely with other nonprofits to connect clients to resources and services such as housing, healthcare, food and clothing needs, and more that they need to develop a stable path out of poverty and homelessness.

When applying online, follow the directions below. Please note, once you've completed the process, you must still visit the Branch to complete the application.

Application Process: 
  • Select the Branch (Office near you)

  • Enter basic information (First & Last Name,  Social Security Number)

  • Workflow Name will adjust based on your location

  • Create your account (Be sure to save your login information for future use)

  • Complete the online application form

* To apply, all clients must bring two forms of valid government ID. The two most common forms are 1) A SSN card and 2) A state ID, but you can also see the full List of Acceptable Documents.

All clients coming from non-profit partners (i.e. The Salvation Army, Gateway, Fulton County Jail, Broad Street Ministries, Project HOME, etc.) must bring a referral letter as well as their ID.
