Atlanta has been making progress on homelessness in recent years, and we’ve been proud to be part of those improvements. This spring we’re continuing that work with two partner organizations: Chris 180 and Nicholas House. To celebrate our 25th campaign, we’re targeting a grant of $25,000 (oof!) to each organization.
Chris 180. The outlook for teens living on the street is pretty bleak. Many have left abusive situations at home, and a disproportionate number are LGBT youth who have been rejected by their families. They need guidance and direction, pronto. Chris 180 provides help through a daytime drop-in center (“The Spot”), where homeless youth get help on education, employment, coping skills, financial literacy, and mental and behavioral health. Mundito will provide $25,000, funding to stabilize 25 youths.
Nicholas House. Homeless families have serious challenges in staying together during their period of crisis. Nicholas House provides temporary housing for families while addressing the root causes of family homelessness. Their shelter provides temporary housing for 50 people, plus dining, adult education, and after-school group study programs. After stabilizing a family into independent living, Nicholas House tracks their progress to ensure success. With a grant of $25,000, Mundito will cover the cost of stabilizing five families.
As usual, we'll be counting on you, our generous donors, to cover half the cost of the project. As always, if your donations exceed our target, the additional funds are used to increase the total grant to our partner organization.
