What Qualifies Us For Service

The Community Resource Center provides multi-service outreach by empowering individuals to become healthy productive citizens in society. This is being accomplished through positive intervention mechanisms for disadvantaged individuals facing financial hardship, economically disadvantaged, physical or emotional hardships, and homelessness. One of the program’s most targeted groups of individuals is the youth in the community that is experiencing challenges with maintaining a healthy lifestyle Epic Center International, Inc. delivers a variety of outreach services aimed at inspiring people to live safe, meaningful lives. Positive action methods, such as conferences, lectures, courses, and counseling, are used to accomplish this. Additionally, Cutting Edge serves people who are homeless or at risk of suicide.

What We do best

Cutting Edge’s mission is founded on the principle that a thriving community is a necessary component of a productive society. The center integrates knowledge, education, and community engagement to foster the growth of a healthy community and, fundamentally, a sustainable society.

Community Resource Center

The Community Resource Center was originally established in 1994 under the previous address as Taylor’s Refuge Village. Ultimately the goal is to provide outreach and human services to the community of Albany/Dougherty County. These services deliver meals to the impoverished individuals and families within the community on a monthly, as well as on an as-need basis. Literature is distributed, services and goods are provided to individuals as well as referrals to other agencies within the community that may be able to provide permanent stability for a healthy lifestyle. Annual assessments are conducted through data collections to determine the greater needs within the community and provide a projection of services needed for the following year.

We Will Help You Every Step Of The Way


We will focus on your problem and help serve as a conduit to empower you.

To begin, you will never truly understand what is preventing you from succeeding until you identify the underlying issue in your situation. Too frequently, we concentrate on the symptoms and eventually end up back in the same place. We’re here to assist you in breaking these cycles.


We will provide support throughout the process as well as seek an avenue through community support services to meet your need.

There is never a one-size-fits-all solution in life; what works for one person may be insufficient for another. Everyone is unique, as are their circumstances and needs. Our expertise is in assessing your situation and developing a customized strategy for success. Let’s examine your available options and determine which one best meets your specific requirements.


Provide continuous support until individuals and families are able to become self-sufficient and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Similar to how there are no pills that will resolve all of life’s problems, there is no one-stop-shop for all of life’s challenges. We make no claim to possess all of the answers. However, we have all the connections, whatever we are unable to handle, our partner will. That is the key to successful living: recognizing when something is too large to confront alone. Requesting assistance is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of strength. Therefore, we’ll join forces with all of our partners to address your concerns.
