Is your company or organization looking for a fun way to do some fun team building and do good, at the same time? Leverage the energy and talents of your team to help fight homelessness. Here’s how you can help us change lives forever in your community.
BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES
Help us provide much-needed backpacks and school supplies for children in our supportive housing and other programs so they are fully prepared for the new school year.
LUNCH AND LEARN WORKSHOPS
On the 4th Wednesday of every month, staff and clients come together for a workshop where a presenter speaks to our clients on a topic that will assist them with life skills to become self-sufficient. Some of the various topics include health and nutrition, financial literacy and management, the process of healing, work readiness, and job skill training.
Do you have a topic you would like to share and lead a workshop?

HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE
Help us organize an Annual Toy Drive to help us provide a holiday gift to the over 300 children of our clients in supportive housing and other programs.
BREAKFAST WITH SANTA
Help us organize a toy distribution and breakfast with Santa for children and their families. A morning-long party where children make holiday decorations, meet Santa and receive a toy that has been collected from our generous sponsors. Each year, over 100 client families attend the event.
ADOPT A FAMILY
Each holiday season we have over 100 supportive housing client families with children under 16, with limited resources in need of toys, home supplies, food, etc. Help us make their holidays special and fulfill their family wish list for needed household items. We will supply you with a family (or families) and a list of their needs. You collect the items and deliver to us or directly to the family.
DONATE PROCEEDS FROM AN EVENT
Due to good weather and many neighborhoods, Atlanta has scores of large and small festivals. Many of the festival organizers select a charity to benefit from ticket sales.
