On the Road to Independent Living
Zaban Paradies Center 2017-2018 Annual Report
Message from the Board Dear Friends and Supporters, Since 1984, Zaban Paradies Center has provided shelter, basic necessities and counseling services to couples experiencing homelessness in Metro Atlanta – a traditionally underserved segment of the homeless population. Many homeless shelters offer short-term and long-term housing, but they serve single women, men or families with children. Neither environment, however, is suited for childless couples who experience homelessness and want to stay together. Zaban Paradies Center not only provides shelter specifically for couples – it also offers the services and resources that address the factors that may lead to homelessness. The programs and services give residents the tools they need to get into secure, stable housing and stay there – as a couple. Couples may stay in our 20-room facility from mid-October through the end of April. We offer them year-long programs, including during the summer months, on job readiness, financial literacy, interpersonal relationships and other valuable life skills. These programs help couples address the issues that may have led to their current situation and helps to provide them with the skills to obtain and maintain stable homes. ZPC has just ended another successful year of putting many couples on the road to living successful, independent lives. Among the highlights: • • • • •
We enrolled 39 couples during the season. The average length of stay was 44 days. 74% of all couples enrolled were estimated to move into permanent housing by April 30, 2018. 64% of employable residents found full- or part-time work (including 82% of all Job Readiness enrollees). In addition to those we house, more than 450 people were interviewed and referred elsewhere along with the hundreds of phone referrals made.
These success stories are the result of couples working hard to take control of their lives. They’re helped along the way by dedicated staff and especially incredible volunteers, who cook healthy meals, teach classes, donate clothing and provide other much-needed services to our residents. We offer a helping hand, not a handout. If you want to be a part of future great success stories, visit us at https://www.zabanparadiescenter.org/ to learn how to volunteer or donate. Thank you for your continued support, Anthony Cochran, Board Chair Zaban Paradies Center
Mission and History Mission To reduce homelessness by helping our residents - couples experiencing homelessness: â€˘ â€˘ â€˘
Obtain employment Find permanent housing Improve critical life skills
About Zaban Paradies Center The goal of The Zaban Paradies Center is to assist couples transitioning from homelessness to resettlement and independence by providing shelter, basic necessities and counseling services. The Center is committed to providing a supportive and encouraging environment for residents as they work to become contributing members of our community. The Zaban Paradies Center, originally the Temple Night Shelter, was founded in 1984 as the first and only shelter for couples in Atlanta experiencing homelessness. The Center was completely staffed and managed by volunteers and funded by The Temple, with the support of generous donors, such as Erwin Zaban and his family. In 2008, the Temple created a board of governance, hired a professional executive director and created a separate non-profit. The name was changed to the Zaban Couples Center, and the mission was expanded to provide not just a safe place to eat and sleep, but also programs and services to assist couples as they move from homelessness to independent living. In 2012, the name was changed again to the Zaban Paradies Center to reflect the very generous support of Dan and Rick Paradies, who understood the mission and the work of the Center and provided support so this important work could continue. Today, ZPC operates a facility providing housing between October and April, complete with daily meals, laundry facilities, wellness services and other amenities. Couples staying in the facility participate in year-round programs that offer relationship counseling, job readiness training and other services that give couples the skills they need to secure stable, permanent housing. While ZPC has a small professional staff, volunteer support is still a critical success factor for the Center. People from numerous educational, religious and service-oriented organizations have helped launch new programs for couples, and new volunteers donate their time and resources to keep them going.
Making Couples Feel at Home Zaban Paradies Center takes in married and committed couples 21 and older between October 15 and April 30 of every year. Each couple stays in a private, furnished bedroom with free linens and has access to shared bathroom facilities, free laundry facilities and supplies, a well-stocked clothing closet with outfits available for workdays and job interviews, and free MARTA cards. Couples stay at the center between 6:30pm and 7:00am. When they’re not sleeping or enjoying a home-cooked dinner, they participate in classes and skills training and occasionally get together to have some fun.
Education and Counseling There are many factors that may lead to homelessness that must be addressed before people in shelters can attain permanent stability and independence. Couples take part in job training, counseling, financial management courses and substance abuse recovery programs in order to successfully return to permanent housing.
Couples enjoy a special Valentine's Day dinner prepared by volunteers from the Good Food community.
Mealtime is a special moment in most families; meals at ZPC feel like family time. Residents get a continental breakfast every morning and a bag lunch to take with them. They come back to the facility to enjoy a home-cooked meal prepared and served by volunteers who also dine with them.
Ronald and Kimberly
Special Events Volunteers throw parties throughout the year so couples can have fun on special occasions… or just for the heck of it. Residents attend Super Bowl parties, Valentine’s Day parties (where one lucky couple is crowned King and Queen of the Center), Easter and other special days.
Each year, a couple is crowned King and Queen of Zaban Paradies Center during the week-long Valentine’s Day celebration. Ronald and Kimberly were given that title in 2016-2017, but getting to that point was a long, hard road. Ronald and Kimberly had been addicted to drugs and alcohol for most of their lives. They moved to Atlanta in July 2016 and found their way to Crossroads Community Ministries, a trusted partner of ZPC, which provides access to resources to people experiencing homelessness. Crossroads referred Ronald and Kimberly to ZPC, where they took part in the programs that led them to sobriety and a chance at long-term independence. Still sober and clean after 21 months, Ronald and Kimberly are now in stable housing and run a small business providing cleaning services. As with other couples, they maintain a close family-like relationship with the amazing staff of Zaban Paradies Center.

The Comfort of a Home-Cooked Meal Thanks to the generosity of volunteers, ZPC is able to offer healthy meals each day to our residents. These meals provide an opportunity for couples to come together and enjoy a home-cooked meal – just like a family. If you want to cook or serve meals for couples, visit www.zabanparadiescenter.org/volunteer/ to sign up.
Lunch Program Lunch for 6000! That’s a big order, but the volunteers at ZPC managed to fill it. For most of the history of ZPC, breakfast and dinner were offered to residents, but not lunch. In fact, the only times residents had lunch was when cold weather kept them indoors or a group of volunteers brought a bag lunch. That all changed when volunteers Sara Franco and Valerie Weitzner developed a bag lunch program. They brought other volunteers together to make and deliver a portable lunch that residents could take when they left the shelter each morning. Jewish Women's Fund of Atlanta trustees make lunches for ZPC couples.
At first, their goal was to provide lunch 2-3 days a week. However, volunteer response was so overwhelming that ZPC had to install a dedicated refrigerator to store all the lunches that were being delivered to the shelter.
Dinner Program "Two hots and a cot. "
During the 2017-18 season, Robyn Ripps managed the lunch program, harnessing the generosity of book clubs, card groups, school sports teams and scouting troops and individuals. By the end of the year, 155 lunch delivery dates had been scheduled, each feeding 20 couples. That comes out to 6,200 individual lunches.
That’s an old description of what is usually provided in homeless shelters: two hot meals and a place to sleep. ZPC provides the place to sleep, but the hot, home-cooked meals came courtesy of our dedicated volunteers. Bea Feiman, Sue Lubin and Bobbi Wilson work with congregations, organizations and individuals to schedule the volunteers who will prepare and serve dinner nightly. Dinner is served at the Center each season from October 15 through April 30. Thanks to their hard work, more than 6,000 dinners were served during the 2017-18 season.
Cooking Matters Couples at ZPC enjoy healthy, home-cooked meals while staying at the Center. The new Cooking Matters program, introduced in 2018, helps them build the skills confidence and knowledge needed to prepare these meals for themselves after they leave the Center.
Enrollees in the Cooking Matters class learn to prepare healthy meals.
Cooking Matters is a six-week, hands-on course taught by dietitians and volunteers from Open Hand Atlanta. Couples learn about cooking techniques, food safety, nutrition and food budgeting. Each week, they leave class with recipes, materials, and a prepared meal. 5
Preparing for the Future Financially... Finding a job and a home are only the first steps for couples residing at ZPC. Maintaining stability is a vital next step. Programming at the Center offers guidance as couples move along this path. During their stay at ZPC, couples are required to enroll in classes to learn the skills they need to build a stable financial future. Dedicated volunteers lead classes and provide leads to employment opportunities in the area.

Financial Management & Budgeting It is not always easy to manage money. Classes at the Center show couples how to set a simple budget, based on their specific income. They also learn how to live within that budget. Since the goal for each couple is to live independently, they receive guidance that will help them save and invest so they are able manage monthly rent and utility costs, along with their other basic needs.
Job Readiness/Training A job is the first step to independence. Keeping that job is vital. Job readiness classes offer couples training to gain skills needed by employers, tips for creating a resume and preparing for a job interview. The fully stocked closet at ZPC often provides couples the appropriate clothing for an interview and a job! In 2017-18, 82% of all job readiness participants found full-time or part-time employment.
...and Personally Couples that manage financial issues are able to find housing. Those that address health and wellness issues are able to create a home. Homelessness isn’t just the result of a lack of money. It can also stem from health issues that affect physical, emotional and mental well-being and make it difficult to maintain financial stability… and, ultimately, a stable home. ZPC classes help our residents address these issues.
Relationship Counseling Couples come to ZPC because they want to stay together as they find their way to independence, but experiencing homelessness can take a toll on even the strongest relationships. ZPC’s Relationship classes give couples the opportunity to rebuild their bonds. They address the issues that existed in the past and those that arose as a result of their current situation, and they learn the skills that will help them keep their relationship strong through the good times and the bad.
Mental Health Approximately 20 percent of individuals experiencing homelessness are also experiencing mental health challenges.* ZPC’s mental health services puts residents in touch with the resources and services they need to manage their mental health issues, so these issues don’t interfere with their ability to find – and maintain – employment and permanent housing.
Wellness A devastating illness or chronic condition costs a lot to manage and, in many cases, makes gainful employment hard to obtain and maintain. ZPC’s on-site wellness services help residents manage short-term health issues; social services are available for those who need longer-term management of chronic conditions.
Substance Abuse Treatment Substance abuse is a major factor for those experiencing homelessness. As an individual increasingly relies on drugs and alcohol to get through the day, they face the possibility of loss of family, employment and, eventually, their home. ZPC holds Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings at the facility so residents battling substance abuse learn to live clean, sober lives.

Celebrate Our Success Stories Volunteers, donors and partner organizations play a huge role in ensuring ZPC continues serving couples experiencing homelessness. However, the most compelling stories come from the couples themselves. Having been through the program, former residents know firsthand what ZPC offers and how it can impact the lives of couples. After leaving ZPC, many couples speak highly of their time here. Some continue working with ZPC to ensure couples are receiving the support and services they need to transition into stable lives.
Chokel and Theresa
Walter and Nyoka
Most of the time, couples come to ZPC as victims of happenstance; they have lost a job, have trouble paying the rent and find themselves in need of help. Often, too, they are struggling with mental health challenges or substance abuse. It’s just one thing, then another, all adding up to a difficult situation.
There is often a perception that the homeless are unemployed and uneducated. That wasn’t the case for Walter and Nyoka Dixon. He was a CFO at Digital Communications Associates and a minister in the community, and she was an assistant facilities manager at Kaiser Permanente.
Such was the case with Chokel and Theresa Taylor. Chokel was a veteran, but he was also an alcoholic when they came to ZPC in 2015. They were struggling financially, had missed their rent payment and had a space heater but no lights. He was just ashamed and had really hit bottom. They were evicted and then referred to ZPC. When they moved into room 305 at the Center, Chokel and Theresa were encouraged – they could see that crazy Georgia Peach from their window and the sunsets were beautiful. The financial counseling and relationship building classes were important for them. They were a ‘couple’, but they weren’t married. Chokel received the support he needed to maintain his sobriety and, as a couple they learned how to help each other. They were eventually married... at ZPC! As if that weren’t enough of a success story, Chokel was referred to a partner agency, HOPE Atlanta, where he received additional support. He was eventually asked to sit on the board of HOPE and provide valuable input that continues to help guide their work.
However, Nyoka lost her job in 2010 amid a series of job cuts at Kaiser Permanente. A few months later, a tax lien was filed against Digital Communications Associates and Walt’s job was gone. The couple figured they were smart and talented and had helped others in the past, so they’d get back on their feet quickly. But they didn't receive the support they expected, and eventually they went through all their savings. They were on their way to becoming homeless and thought about sleeping in their car so they could stay together. Then one day, Nyoka ran into an acquaintance from church, a social worker who knew about the Zaban Couples Center (ZPC’s name at the time) and referred Nyoka and Walter. After entering the facility, they both found part-time jobs at Office Depot. While they earned enough to move into their own home, it wasn’t enough to provide long-term stability. Nyoka loved to bake, so she suggested selling baked goods to supplement their income. The business started slowly, but over time they made enough to buy a new car and start rebuilding their credit. Today, their business supplies sweets to many restaurants around Metro Atlanta. Meanwhile, Walt continues to minister and brings in additional income by trading stocks. Walter and Nyoka know the support they received from the staff, volunteers and couples at ZPC help them return to self-sufficiency. In fact, they believe in the work so much that Walter joined ZPC’s Advisory Board to help shape policy as ZPC tries to reach more people across the community.
Chokel and Theresa stay in touch and return regularly to give back to ZPC; they share their experiences so current couples understand where the ZPC programs and services can lead.
