Austin Benamon

Austin Benamon is the Founder and CEO of Outreach City, one of the largest and fastest growing social services organizations in Cleveland, Ohio and Atlanta, Georgia.

 

At first glance, Austin is an accomplished CEO and leader of other non-profit organizations. But underneath the starched collars and the power ties, he is a trailblazer and trendsetter who focuses on relevance and innovation. Austin is committed to continual improvement and creating opportunities for others to improve as well.

 

 

Austin is sensitive to the plight of the underserved because he has experienced their same dilemmas. As a child, Austin was shuffled through many of Cleveland’s group and foster homes. His memories of those who helped by investing their time and money into his life, motivate him to give back to the community he was once a part of, as well as the community at large. Austin shares candidly about challenges the local underserved individuals face, and provides solution driven responses to matters of social inequality and political injustice with cultural sensitivity.

 

Austin Benamon is also the creator of Black Friday Atlanta, an initiative to bring awareness and exposure to black owned and operated businesses in Metro Atlanta. The purpose is to inform the community of the number and types of black owned businesses, while also encouraging individuals to financially support these businesses as consumers. African Americans currently have buying power worth more than $1.2 trillion dollars, yet we spend little of our money within the context of the blacked owned businesses. Oftentimes, this is due to lack of exposure because the community is unaware of the “who” or “where” of black owned businesses. The website, blackfridayatl.com, was created for businesses to advertise their services and deals, as well as to assist the community in locating those same businesses.

 

With a number of certifications and awards, Austin continues to have a great appetite for community development, as well as educating and learning, and is currently pursuing his MBA from Southern New Hampshire University. He is honored to be a leader in such growing communities.
