A Home for Everyone: A Collaborative Initiative on Homelessness
Where & When: Sycamore House parking lot across from the Decatur Library at 218 Sycamore St. at 12:30 pm when the weather is cold. An announcement will be made the evening before by 6 pm if we are opening. If there is no announcement, volunteers will not be needed. It is not necessary to sign up in advance.
Since March 13th, many of you have been providing the food and the money so that three churches, Jen, Tammy and "A Home For Everyone In DeKalb" can provide a daily lunch to those who are food insecure.
Due to the pandemic, we are unfortunately unable to provide indoor shelter this winter; instead, with funds donated by many of you and local churches, we are offering:
- Hotel rooms for families with children
- Sleeping bags, blankets and other items in a "survival kit”
- A supper bag or gift card
- Round trip Marta cards to help people travel to the overflow Atlanta cold weather shelters
Please sign up in the following slots to keep people safe this winter and please keep in mind we can always use more blankets!
You can also make a donation. Round trip Marta cards are $6.00 each. We will be providing approximately 30 a day with the possibility of being open 40 days. Every cent you donate goes to helping those without a home. Donate at compassionateatl.org/donate and under special instructions to seller, after you put in the amount, specify for “A Home”. Or mail to: Compassionate Atlanta P.O. BOX 311408 Atlanta, GA 31131
