Storage World is continuing to put the spotlight on local business and community organizations that utilize our storage facilities. This month, we are focusing on Begin Again Ministry, which is based in Atlanta.
Begin Again Ministry was founded in April 2002 by Dr. Deborah Harrell Isom. The mission of the organization is “to eradicate homelessness through the spread of God’s Love.” Through the “Feed the Homeless Program”, Begin Again Ministry provides thousands of meals each year in the metro Atlanta area. According to Dr. Isom, “Up to 10,000 men, women and children become homeless in Atlanta communities every day!”
In 2012, the Begin Again Ministry served over 30,000 individual meals to Atlanta’s homeless, assisted 6 local ministries with thousands of pounds of food and provides food, clothing, toiletries and the word of God to 5 local homeless shelters and drug rehabilitation centers. The organization has set community meal schedules as well as provides food boxes on Wednesday and Fridays for the United Way. The following is the monthly meal schedule:
1st Friday of Each Month (At 6pm-8pm for homeless men, women and children)
3rd Thursday of Each Month
Task Force Homeless Shelter
477 Peachtree St S.W.
2nd Saturday of Each Month (At 7pm-8pm for homeless men)
Atlanta Recovery House
69 Trinity Ave
3rd Thursday of Each Month (Senior Citizens)
1200 Glenwood Ave S. E.
The organization is made up of volunteers. Each feeding location has 20-25 volunteers to help feed the homeless and senior citizens. There are currently 85 volunteers who are on file to work with the organization throughout the year. Begin Again Ministry willingly takes donation of food, clothing, toiletries and money for the program. You can help with your donation via their website. All donations are tax-deductible.
Begin Again Ministry was created by Dr. Deborah Harrell Isom, who is a minister, author, missionary with trips to Uganda and Rwanda and executive producer of “Prophetic Times”.
Storage World is very proud to donate a storage unit to this worthwhile local organization.
