In May, we are going to do our first ever tour in different counties with our #mobilemakeovers bus! We are calling it #lovetourATL! We will travel from county to county to makeover people who deserve to have their dignity restored. We can’t wait to change lives across our city!
Good news…. The first two sections are completed! We will unveil how it looks soon, and take it out for a test run. In fact, we only have one more section to go (showers)! We need your help though…
It will take another 10K to complete. If you would like to give to our project please click [HERE]
Since our “Get on The Bus” campaign, we have made some major strides. In fact, in the last two months we have gotten the bus wrapped, and started the transformation process on the inside. It has come a long way, and it is almost that time to get it on the road.
We will have two phases of the bus completed (Barbershop/Closet).
After getting it on the road and sharing some #mobilemakovers stories, we are then going to attempt to raise additional funds to add the shower unit inside.

Have you ever collected many small puzzle pieces, and somehow it dawns on you that they all make up a bigger picture?
Well, that’s what has happened and keeps happening with our #mobilemakeovers project! The other day, my daughter and I decided to take the two front seats to a reupholstery shop five minutes away from the office… Upon our arrival, I spoke with the owner, showed him the seats, and waited for an estimate.
Little did I know he’d ask me why were we wanting the seats to be redone… Well, I shared our story and he got this look in his eyes… He looked at the seats, and then looked at me and said, “God wants me to help you… You all are out there ministering to people… we will do them at no charge!”
This touched me so much because little by little God has provided through random people to help us piece together our first mobile project!
Huge S/O to Banister’s Upholstery!
This past weekend, Derrick Bailey (Principal in Cobb) dropped off several boxes of food raised from a young men’s mentoring group called, “Man or Male.”
This group shows young men the importance of having character and integrity throughout their life. We will use these donations to resource many families that are food insecure in the area where our office is located.
Thanks to 11Alive News and The Color Spot, the outside is done…. Woohooo… It was extremely awesome picking up the bus this past weekend, and seeing the transformation to the outside complete. Now, all we have to do is complete/finish the inside.
Currently, we are building/framing sections and taking steps toward completion. This is super amazing to see the bus that we were donated back in September 2014 come so far… God is truly pushing this project forward.
We ask that you help us raise the last 20K to not only finish the interior of the bus but to get the bus up on the road providing full makeovers to people in need around the city. These funds will cover more materials needed to continue transforming the inside of the bus, labor, and get us running.
Below are the before/after photo, and the framing we have done on the inside. If you’d like to give, please click [HERE].
This past Monday, 75+ people gathered at the Love Beyond Walls Headquarters and began gutting the bus out, and prepping it to be changed. Below are a few pictures from this past MLK’s Serve Day!
