We are happy to announce that we are now officially a partner charity on Amazon Smile. Click on the banner to take you to our Amazon smiles partner charity page and Amazon will donate a portion of your eligible purchase to our Organization at no extra cost to you.
Currently this is a not an overnight facility, but we are praying that with the help of community members and businesses we can change that in 2018.
There is no overnight facility in Henderson County for the homeless during times of inclement weather, and yet the need is great. It has been estimated that there are about 50 to 100 homeless individuals, including women and children, in Athens alone. If you would like to help us reach our goal in building an overnight facility, please click on the give button found on the top of each page. Your help is greatly appreciated.
This year on January 15, 2018, we had snow, sleet, and freezing rain with temperatures dipping into the teens and single digits for several days. While our facility is not equipped for overnight stays, we felt the overwhelming need to provide a warm place to stay to the less fortunate in our area. So, we decided to clear our reception area and asked for donations of blankets, sleeping bags, pillows and air mattresses. Our community came together to provide enough supplies for our guests. Our first sleep over went well and there was "Room at the Inn" for all.
Yes! We have homeless people in our county!
Our commitment to helping others is at the forefront of our efforts. We can’t truly understand ourselves until we have empathized with a fellow member of society and sacrificed for them.
