In Fayette and Coweta counties alone there are over 23,000 veterans (11,253 in Fayette and 11,765 in Coweta). There are 1,632 post 9/11 veterans in Fayette county. Are you one of them? If so, we are here for you.
It may not be in your nature to ask for help, but we are here for you when you do decide to ask. You have always put mission first; well, now maybe the new mission is YOU. You served your country and now it may be time to let someone serve you. Everyone from time to time needs a word of encouragement, an extra boost, or a kick in the butt! That's why we are here. The Eden Project is made up of veterans helping veterans and like you, we know what it's like to try and do it alone. We have been there and will give you what you need to succeed, and we will stay with you as long as you need.
Our initial focus is in Fayette and Coweta Counties of Georgia but, we will not turn a veteran away wherever you may be located. Statically nearly 50% of us leave our first job within a year and many within the first 9 months. In Georgia, the veteran unemployment rate is 18.7, which is two times the national average. Our marriages are struggling and many are turning to drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism. This is preventable and avoidable with some simple tools and support provided by our signature program the Phoe3nix Force.
Our programs strive to help YOU the veteran retain your job, locate the proper medical care if needed, decrease stress and anxiety at home, improve communication skills and assist with a smooth reintegration for you and your family. We also provide opportunities to give back to the community through volunteer programs with partner organizations.
