Community Empowerment Fund of Athens

Athens, GA is home to a large number of workers who are among the working poor. They work every day but cannot break the cycle of poverty because they do not earn a living wage.

Ms. Ricky Roberts, founder of Under the Rainbow, created the Community Empowerment Fund of Athens (CEFA) to assist low wage and recently separated workers in their time of need. CEFA is supported by the Economic Justice Coalition and Georgia Client Council.

The Economic Justice Coalition (EJC) will manage all CEFA donations.  To make a donation to CEFA, please go to www.gofundme.com/cefa706

Donations can also be mailed in, please make checks payable to the Economic Justice Coalition, put CEFA in the memo and mail to CEFA P.O.BOX 843 Athens, GA 30603.
