I hope this message finds you well. On Christmas Day in 2014, my family and I went Downtown Atlanta to feed the homeless, and was overwhelm by the amount of people who were homeless. I knew I had to do something to help. Since that day, we have been feeding and ministering to the homeless on the third Saturday of each month by soliciting help from others. The most people we have fed is 100 and there a many more men, women and children who walk away hungry because we don't have enough . My goal is to help the homeless and those transitioning from incarceration to begin again. In other words, to help them start a new life by providing food, clothes, shelter and also career and mental health counseling; and work with employment agencies, temporary services, established business owners and Marta Transit to help them to become gainfully employed, so they can improve the quality of their life. For the most part, it is difficult for those who are homeless and transitioning from incarceration to find employment. I believe that everyone deserves a second chance. The Ministry of Reconciliation and Outreach was established to share the love of Jesus Christ and help others to begin again by starting a new life. I am grateful for the opportunity to tell my story and to share with others what we are doing to make a positive difference in the lives of those who are homeless. Thank you.
