WABE and CL visit the Atlanta Recovery Center to learn about the recession's ripple effects

Posted By on Mon, Oct 7, 2013 at 3:55 PM

One man couldn't afford to pay his mortgage after his mother died. Another, an IT professional, ended up on the streets after business dropped off. WABE reporter Jim Burress and CL Photographer Joeff Davis, as part of a partnership between WABE and CL about metro Atlanta's vibrant and vital nonprofit community, visited Downtown's Atlanta Recovery Center to learn how the economy affected the center's residents. Burress' story - and the collection of vignettes he gathered from ARC Executive Director Derek Boyd and the center's residents - is a companion piece to CL's look at how the recession has affected the charities and groups that help feed the homeless, boost the arts, and protect the environment.

This week, we'll profile one of metro Atlanta's biggest and smallest nonprofits. Tune in to 90.1 FM to hear WABE's report on the same subject on Saturday morning. To see the partnership's collection of stories, visit WABE or our page dedicated to the subject.
