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!

Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta & Pathways Magazine – A Movement of Doers!

“Love is a powerful force,” Terence explains. “God is love, and we are on a mission to take that love into places where there is darkness and hopelessness, despondency and all those different things keeping people in the cycle of being oppressed.”

Atlanta Hawks Come To Love Beyond Walls

This past Friday, we got a chance to partner with Woodward Academy to serve hundreds of people for #FeedTheNeed.

Not only did we hang out with families to give them hope for the Holiday, but we had a wonderful surprise to take place.

The Atlanta Hawks came to our headquarters with “Harry the Hawk,” several representatives from the Hawks organization, and Kaiser to present our Executive Director [Terence] with an award [#TrueToAtlantaAward] for the #MAP16 journey. 

Additionally, the Hawks got a chance to hang out with the community and encourage them along with us.

Check out a few pictures below!
