About ATLAS

We live in a time when we are surrounded by disappointments and hardships.

To address that, ATLAS provides a listening ear, obtainable goal setting, advocacy, accountability, life skills coaching and healthy relationship building, all provided at no cost to clients. We work as an extension of the local church, helping when situations arise beyond the abilities and resources of the church body, all built on Biblical principles and prayer.

Each client has unique needs, so ATLAS works closely in one-to-one relationships with clients to assess needs, develop goals and provide hands-on assistance. ATLAS staff walk alongside clients, teaching and speaking truth in love through weekly meetings.

Stories of Restoration

A young mom, Jackie, came to ATLAS at a very difficult point in her life. She was in the process of divorce, did not have employment, and was struggling with significant periods of depression.

ATLAS staff were able to connect Jackie to local Christian counseling, therapy, and support services for her son.

Jackie has now completed nurses assistant training and has secured employment at a local hospital. God has taken her periods of depression and turned them from mourning to dancing.

A single mom, Katy, who has been working to get custody of her children for quite some time, was offered support and guidance to meet the court’s requirements.

ATLAS staff were also able to help her get the necessary supports in place for when her children return home.

She was recently granted custody of her children, who are now living with her full time.
