Cobb Commission Chairman Tim Lee and members of the Cobb Chamber are planning to be present at a dedication ceremony Thursday for a program meant to help the homeless, especially veterans and people with disabilities.

RescueRepurpose-Redeem, at 6289 Veterans Memorial Highway, Building 12-A in Austell will officially be open for business after a ribbon-cutting scheduled from 2 to 5 p.m.

RescueRepurpose-Redeem offers job training, skill enhancements and education in all aspects of business management, according to a release from Sweetwater Mission — a coalition of local churches, businesses, civic groups and individuals — which is behind the venture.

According to RescueRepurpose-Redeem’s website, the organization generates income through the sale of rescued and repurposed items, including tote bags, jewelry, billfolds and handmade note cards.
