“The Atlanta Voice” Features LBW

This past week, we were featured in an article in “The Atlanta Voice” addressing the continuing issue of homelessness in Atlanta. 

We were able to speak about the housing crisis for people experiencing homelessness, and our new idea for alternative housing.

Atlanta’s First Mobile Shelter – Mobile Stay

Earlier this year, we started using creative housing to get people experiencing homelessness off the streets.

We’ve learned a lot about how hard it is to find a place to stay if you miss the cut off time for a shelter. Therefore, we started telling this story about excess. In this country we have so much excess, but we have yet to tap into this excess to solve “real time” problems.

A few months back, a generous family reached out to us and donated this brand new RV (equipped with a shower, a restroom, and living space).

They took their excess and said, “We want to see it help people…”

Therefore, we’ve decided to launch Atlanta’s first Mobile Shelter. It’s called Mobile Stay, and we are less than a month away from giving stays to those who have no safety net.

C.R. Snippet – Voiceless

Have you ever felt unheard?
Have you ever felt unseen?
Have you ever felt voiceless?

Every single day, millions of people experiencing homelessness and poverty like C.R. feel like their stories don’t matter.

On August 25, 2017, Love Beyond Walls will partner with The Center for Civil and Human Rights​ to screen our first feature length film “Voiceless” to give a voice to the voiceless.

Why? Because they matter and so do their stories!

Voiceless Documentary Pre-Screening Testimonials

Earlier this week, we pre-screened our “Voiceless” documentary to a group of youth (and their leaders) that traveled from Orlando, FL to serve the community with us. Brace yourselves! Their responses were raw, honest, and inspiring. We can’t wait to reveal the film to the public in August.

Can You Feel The Excitement?

Guess what? We have teamed up with Matt Heath Music to create original score music for our documentary “Voiceless” and we are pretty pumped about it.

In fact, we are excited to announce that “Voiceless” will become a feature length documentary and will be used to educate people about the realities of the poor, cast vision of how we plan to address poverty through our “Love Center” concept, and inspire people all across our nation to get involved in their local communities through service and sacrifice.

Below is a quick picture of us working on the project in the studio. We can’t wait to start launching screenings all around our city.

You will not believe this!

Over the last couple of months, our organization has been intentional about giving people experiencing homelessness untraditional housing to get them off of the streets, and provide a place to stay that’s safe.

If we can be honest, it’s been messy, hard, confusing, and fun all at the same time. We’ve laughed with them, have had the privilege of celebrating successes, and have talked through struggles.

Long story short, we’ve just taken what’s in front of us and have used it to serve those who are forgotten.

Little did we know that a family was watching our work with using trailers to provide housing.  Well, this same family reached out and donated our organization this RV trailer! Wow is all we can say!

We can’t wait to reveal what this will become for our next campaign.
