GA Parole Review Spring/Summer 2020 Georgia Parole Review Spring/Summer 2020 - Page 9

The Field Services Division and Human Resources unit of the State Board of Pardons and Paroles conducted a "Day of Service" last spring. Parole staff from the two units donated hundreds of blankets, gloves, socks, toiletries, and personal care items to Covenant House Georgia. There are thirty-three Covenant House locations across the nation and one in Georgia located in Atlanta. Covenant House provides shelter, services, and meals for homeless and trafficked youth ages 18-24.

One out of every four youth at Covenant House Georgia is a victim of human trafficking.

State employees are required to complete training each year regarding identifying signs or indications of human trafficking.

The youth at the school are empowered to finish high school, start college, gain employment, live independently, and ultimately step out into the world, prepared to be successful.

The youth were appreciative of the parole donations and both Covenant House Georgia and the agency look forward to a continued volunteer partnership.
