Our Vision for 2021 is to purchase a mobile shower trailer and truck to provide access to clean showers for the homeless community. This is something that is needed immediately by the homeless all over Atlanta.
Being clean is a privilege that is not easily available to homeless people. The situation has worsened because of the pandemic.
With a 2 to 3-stall shower trailer and a dependable used truck to pull it, we will be capable of offering 100 showers per week. In addition, we will have clothing available, hygiene kits, also providing towels for the showers.
We are $50,000 away from our projective goal (Early spring) of making this vision come true.
Mr. Darin Johnson’s family had reported him missing in Georgia because he was part of a drug recovery program in Lagrange Georgia. Mr. Johnson left the program and stop taking his bipolar medications and found himself homeless on the steps of North Avenue Presbyterian Church. Gene our chief engineer had a conversation with Darin which led to him being able to connect with Darin’s brother who sent him a ticket back home to Washington D.C. and then Gene led him to the ministry and we got him clean clothes, traveling snacks and a few dollars for the trip.
On September 17, 2020 we put Darin on the bus heading home. On September 18, 2020 we called his mother and she confirmed he made it home safe.
