First Serve Saturday of 2017

This past Saturday we partnered with three Churches to mobilize over 50 volunteers to serve the community.

Not only did these groups help us to organize our center, but they also got a chance to hear powerful stories from those who are experiencing homelessness in the city.
Check out the recap video below to see what happened.

SIX DAYS WITH SHELTER: It’s been six days since Ronald stopped sleeping on the ground and started living in this small house our organization built and he’s already talking differently.

He says, “Now I feel like I have to accomplish some things like getting my ID, social security card and birth certificate. I also want to see if I can reconnect with some of my family back home if I can find anyone.”

Although he has not fully transitioned out of homelessness, having a solid support system has started to build his confidence that it’s possible to start again. He says, “Being warm has given me the space to think…”

Wow. “Being warm….”

Think about it, when life happens who can you call? Maybe a mother, close friend, dad, mentor, etc.

Well, when you’re experiencing homelessness there is a social isolation and depletion of all social equity that strips your strength from community.

That’s why we urge people who make generalizations about the homeless to NOTICE THEM. Noticing someone might give someone the courage they need to keep fighting.

Over the next two weeks, we are going to help him achieve some of his goals.

If you’d like to contribute basic necessities (such as food, bus cards, etc.) until we get him back home safe and sound reach out. 


Mobile Shelter Concept – Love Beyond Walls

Over the last three years, we have helped many people “experiencing homelessness,” transition out of homelessness by reuniting with family members, making connections to find work, and even helping people find programs that would walk them through the stability process.
Although we’ve assisted many, we still find out new realities of those facing poverty every single day. During some of the coldest days this year (2017), when we asked many people who are “experiencing homelessness” if they would liked to be transported to a shelter, many declined.
To our surprise, many people not only feared for their safety in shelters, but have been so socially excluded that they have given up on trying to find an acceptable community.

Therefore, a couple people from our team came up with a “temporary” mobile shelter concept for those that choose to remain on the streets.

The picture you see above was a concept we developed for a guy sleeping out in the cold (this month), so he’d be able to remain warm and be shielded from the elements.
Have we figured all the details to this concept out? No. But, we have now decided to develop a prototype that will be transportable for men and women who choose to stay on the streets until they transition off of the streets. It’s a temporary solution that provides safety.

Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we develop phase 2.

Happy New Year 2017

We just wanted to take time to say thank you for supporting our work in 2016. This year alone, we reached millions of people digitally through our awareness campaign and resourced thousands of people with hope, connections, and basic need items locally and nationally.

We couldn’t have done any of this without your help and support!

Guess what else? We’ve started the editing process for our documentary film, and will give you updates as we progress this coming January.

We just wanted to say thank you and Happy New Year!

Day of Love & Christmas Deliveries

This past Saturday, we partnered with Revolution Church, CoveredBridge Church, Bronner Bros. & a well-known studio to serve many families for the Holidays.

We had over 50 volunteers loving on 250+ families in College Park. Not only did we serve them, but we prayed for tons of people who expressed their pains, hurts, and fears.

This coming Saturday, we are delivering the gifts collected for the families we adopted for Christmas.

Check out some of the pictures below!
