Health & Human Services
At Georgia Power, we envision a state where every community is strong. We know that by strengthening health and human services we do our part in bringing together the right people to help improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods.
From promoting financial stability and independence to improving health and ending chronic homelessness, Georgia Power’s giving helps hundreds of non-profit agencies touch thousands of lives across Georgia by addressing a variety of community, family and individual needs. We are committed to supporting health and human service programs that promote positive change. In 2016, we proudly contributed over $6 million dollars to organizations focused on improving the health and well-being of citizens and communities throughout the state.
Georgia Power has proudly partnered with Mercy Care for over 20 years. Founded in 1985, Mercy Care has grown to be the only federally qualified healthcare center for the homeless in Atlanta. They provide primary care, behavioral health, dental care and other wrap-around services to those who live in extreme poverty or who are underinsured. Mercy Care not only provides high-quality healthcare in its clinics, but they also provide care to the homeless where they live—on the streets, under bridges, in tunnels, parks and abandoned properties.
