Do you remember how you felt just walking to your car during the unusually sub-zero temperatures that was felt across the country or how you felt just to cross the street during this recent cold wave? How about “leaning into the wind, how the cold stabbed at your joints, and how, each time you inhaled the frigid air, you thought your lungs would crack?” Then just imagine how some homeless men, women and children who weren’t able to find shelter felt sitting huddled up with high winds and the bitter cold pounding the cardboard box under that bridge. There is something so wrong when people can sit idly by, having Christmas dinners or whatever it is you do during the holidays or any day for that matter, and not have a second thought about a person in need. You see so many people living on the streets everyday and people just pass them by daily, that you become apathetic to it. But no one should become desensitized to human suffering. With your support, you can help the Atlanta Mission and other organizations end homelessness one day at a time, just by donating your time, skills, talents and monetary gifts.
The Atlanta Mission is a Christian based organization that reaches people physically, emotionally and spiritually. Their goal is to touch the heart and the spirit of every person in need that walks through it’s door. They help to transform the lives of homeless families through the support of the community and the love of God by bringing them out of the darkness into the light. This organization was established in 1938 and has been providing services and transforming lives of homeless men, women and children for 75 years.
The women & children’s section is called My SistersHouse, and the Atlanta Mission provides emergency and temporary shelter as well as transitional housing for more than 950 men, women and children on a daily basis. There’s also a recovery program, job training and a personal development program.
There’s an annual 5k race to end homelessness, and to see so many people get involved to run this race shows the homeless how much people really care. With your support it can continue growing to create bigger and better facilities and to grow the organization so that you can make it possible to help get all homeless men, women and children off the streets and give back their dignity and help them to become productive citizens in the community. This will not only benefit the homeless, but the Atlanta community as well. So please, let’s come together for a common cause and support your homeless and help save a life, it’s such a worthy cause and you’ll be glad you did.
