How do we possibly show our appreciation and thanks to The IMPACT! Group and more specifically Sandy Burns for all the wonderful help and support that has been offered and given to us during our transition into our new home in June 2015.  We would have never been able to have this fresh start without everyone at the organizations outstanding and absolutely wonderful dedication to include:

 Two Men and a Truck
 Johns Creek Christian Church

We truly appreciate everyone's urgency and diligent performance in getting everything expedited and we thank God for the organizations and all the volunteers who  gave and continue to give their time and attention to individuals who are in need.  So again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we pray that we will be able to pay it forward in the near future.

God Bless you and thank you from the Thomas Family!

Thank You to the congregation of John's Creek Christian Church who held a "Worship Without Walls" service at one of our Veteran's houses.  They gave so much love so we could provide a home for a Veteran and their family!

Now that's making an IMPACT!

 I had the pleasure to both meet and work with Mrs. Brigitte from The IMPACT! Group starting early during the year 2011 to the present.  She has really been patient and helpful during the past two and a half years while I have been modifying my mortgage.  She has worked tirelessly with my mortgage company and exhausted each and every option.  She has been a great help to me as well as an asset to The IMPACT! Group.  She went above and beyond the call of duty many times by searching for new programs that may help me in my situation.  I don't know what I would have done without her over these past two years.

From the heart,
Terri P

I would like to thank The IMPACT! Group for all the hard work that they have done for me.  My home was in foreclosure status when I came to The IMPACT! Group.  I had been working with my lender for two years trying to get a loan modification due to hardships that I encountered from a divorce.  I tried unsuccessfully to get a loan modification from my lender and turned to The IMPACT! Group desperate and stressed out because I was afraid I would lose my home.  Brigitte was assigned to my case, she gave me words of encouragement and was dedicated to resolving my issue with my lender. She became my voice for communicating with my lender for the five months it took to get my home modified.

I would like to thank The IMPACT! Group for all the hard work they do for families that find themselves in hardship situations.  I would like to give a special thanks to Brigitte for fighting my battle that I thought sometimes was a losing battle.  I am one of the success stories and living stress free with an affordable mortgage.

The IMPACT! Group came into my life at a time of loss and despair.  I am a Marine Veteran who was homeless. Then I met Ms. Ebonie Brown and Ms. Sandy Burns. They gave me hope, a sense of peace, and most importantly, they listened. 

Hard times started when I lost my job in May 2013.  It would be 11 months before I found a job with a private firm, only to be caught in the first round of cuts due to downsizing 3 months later.  Once the unemployment benefits were exhausted, I had nothing.  No savings and nowhere to turn, and eventually I lost my home.  In what seemed like the blink of an eye but felt like eternity, I went from making almost $40,000 annually to less than $20,000.  Then I met Ebonie of the Gwinnett Veterans Resource Center and she led me to Sandy and The IMPACT! Group.  

Before Sandy and I met, she was introduced to my story.  So when we met, one of the first things she told me was she could help me.  I felt the weight and burden lifting.  Sandy helped me get into an apartment, provided assistance with furnishing my apartment, and helped with getting the utilities connected.  What Sandy and The IMPACT Group did for me cannot be classified as help.  They gave me a piece of my dignity back.  The IMPACT Group means so much to me.  They gave me a chance, and started me on the path to getting my life back, and for that, I will forever be eternally thankful and grateful.
