Administrative/Biographical History

In December 1932, the Atlanta Constitution published its annual list of the Ten Neediest Families in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. Mrs. Emily Inman and a group of her friends decided to give money, food, and clothing to the care of one family on the list. Early in 1933 the group, already growing in number, organized themselves with dues and fundraising activities to help more families. The Service Group also started an Employment Exchange, which helped find work for the jobless. The group also started a shop, the Omnibus Shop, to raise money.
