In an effort to assist the homeless population in downtown Atlanta, the Ramos Law Firm provided dinner to the residents of the Genesis Shelter on June 29, 2009.  The Genesis Shelter aims to provide an environment that allows homeless newborns to grow and develop in a nurturing and healthy surrounding. The Shelter enables homeless families to remain together during tough times.

According to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, over 75,000 Georgians experienced homelessness in 2008.  “In this devastating economy, our community must pull together and do whatever we can to help,” stated Bryan Ramos, a workers’ compensation attorney at the Ramos Law Firm. “Providing a simple dinner to a group of families can go a long way.  Being homeless is hopefully a temporary situation.  If our firm can assist in one step of the process, we are all the better.”  Ramos continued.  The Genesis Shelter provides many services to assist families such as a counseling, child development, and after-care programs.
