Center for Employment Opportunities is thrilled to be a beneficiary of the 2022 Beloved Benefit in Atlanta! The Beloved Benefit is an annual gathering to support organizations promoting equity and building strong, healthy communities in Atlanta. This year, the event features performances by Usher and Maroon 5. NBC Sports host and correspondent Maria Taylor will serve as the emcee for the Benefit, which will also honor the legacy of Congressman John Lewis.

The Beloved Benefit focuses on helping shape Atlanta’s legacy by cultivating a community free of poverty, hunger and homelessness, where racism and prejudice are replaced with love and compassion.

With one of the highest incarceration rates, 1 in 5 people in the United States are under some form of correctional control. Each year 600,000 people leave the nation's prisons with little support. The impacts of the carceral state are most keenly felt in Black communities.

CEO provides immediate, effective, and comprehensive employment services to individuals who have recently returned home from incarceration. In 2021, CEO opened our newest office in Atlanta. CEO Atlanta provides participants immediate employment with daily pay, skills training, job placement, and ongoing career support.

CEO thanks the Beloved community, event sponsors, event founders, and the 2022 host committee for recognizing the Center for Employment Opportunities as a beneficiary of this event! This year’s Beloved Benefit will take place on Thursday, July 7, 2022, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. For more information visit
