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.

The Young Adult Guidance Center, Inc. was started in 1986 by Marion L. Simpson, a career social worker. Having worked with youth in residential programs, Mr. Simpson noticed a critical service gap for older male youth. Males who were 16 or 17 could not accompany their families into family shelters because they were considered a safety risk. Although they were unable to be admitted into the family shelters, they were still too young to be admitted into adult shelters. There was also an entire population of young people, primarily males, who had aged out of the foster care and juvenile justice system. Once these young people turned 18, they were no longer in state custody and left without a support system or the tools needed for success. Mr. Simpson founded the Young Adult Guidance Center to fill this void.
