The Angels program provides extended case management tailored specifically for each of our Guests with a physical and/or mental disability. About 17% of those we help each year are served through the Angels program. These Guests are the most vulnerable—and are typically chronically homeless.

  • Assisting Guests with applying for public benefits to which they are entitled

Joe Nunez is deeply grateful to Crossroads and Emily McIver, program director for Angels Over Atlanta. For years Joe had unstable housing. Often he was forced to sleep in the woods, even on cold winter nights. Emily help Joe secure disability benefits, and after years on a waiting list, he was able to move into a safe and clean HUD-subsidized retirement community. Crossroads paid the deposit and first month’s rent. Now, Joe has stable housing in a warm, comfortable and affordable apartment.
Brenda Brown has longstanding challenges with mental illness. In 2002 she began working with Crossroads’ Angels Over Atlanta program. Thanks to Program Director Emily McIver’s ongoing commitment to Brenda and years of incremental progress, Brenda has been able to achieve stability. She completed certification as a nurse’s aide, obtained a Georgia driver’s license and has moved into permanent housing.
