Since 1991, Open Arms has expanded to include other sheltering programs that broaden the availability of life-altering programs for children, youth, and families that are victims of child abuse, homelessness, and human trafficking. Open Arms, Inc is the umbrella organization which oversees 4 other sheltering programs. These programs are The Bridge, The Maternity Group Home, Transitional Living Program Shelter and Scattered-Site Apartments, and the Emergency Shelter for Unaccompanied Youth and Families. Additionally, we offer two Outreach Programs and Rapid Rehousing.
An online food stamps application can be completed by an applicant after he or she creates an online account. When applying for food stamps, an applicant should be prepared with the proper documentation and information that will be requested throughout the application process. Completing the food stamps application thoroughly and correctly is important to prevent delays in benefits and to ensure the proper monthly benefit allotment calculations. The GA food stamps application also asks a series of questions to determine if the applicant qualifies for expedited benefits. When applying for food stamps, households that can prove extremely low income and no access to resources may be able to obtain food stamps within seven days. The Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) offers Georgia food stamps application translation services and assistance completing all forms and the entire application process at no charge to applicants who need it.
