Our Programs

Street Outreach

Street Outreach Volunteers connect with homeless and at-risk kids under 25 on the streets of Atlanta. They provide resources, toiletries, snack packs, and harm reduction counseling to address the risks associated with street life. We need more feet on the street! Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday evenings.

Interested? Contact Janice, our awesome Director of Volunteer Support, at


Caring volunteers are matched with a homeless/at-risk high school student in select Fulton County Schools. Consistent relationships gives homeless students the support and encouragement needed to stay in school and soar to heights they never imagined, but definitely deserve!

If you are over 24 years old and have an open heart...This is for YOU!

Mentors needed for 2016-17 school year!

Surviving Summer: it's hot out here! We need water, socks, t-shirts, and deodorant. You can also choose to support our Emergency Assistance Fund or Back2School Backpack Drive. Find out more here.

Proud to share our Resource Guide!

A lot of work was put into this, but when you encounter a youth on the street with an immediate need...we must be prepared to connect our kids with the most up to date resources and services. Take a gander - You are advocates for our youth, too!
