Loving the People of Atlanta

Meeting People
Where They arE

Village Hope is an outreach program and resource center for the streets of Atlanta. A place to connect with people where they are, to help find light in the darkness.

Meet our friends and neighbors....


Meet Charles

Ashamed. Lost. Alone.

Charles gave up on a different life for himself. He was lost in addiction, ashamed of past mistakes and alone in the streets not sure the next step. 

Through a friendship with Village Hope he saw he had purpose and options, he found hope within and took a chance on himself.

Constantly reminded that we are all created in HIS image and have purpose. Now Charles is…

Healing. Found. Loved.

Through meeting him right where he was in addiction and homlessness, he found not only friendship but a community willing to guide him no matter his shortcomings or falls.

Charles is now sober, working and active in a community of men recovering like himself. He’s a leader amongst his peers and thriving in his recovery while building work history and a support network.


Meet Sheriff

Sheriff grew up in foster care and spent his entire life in the system . . .

Never learning to read or write, not having a family or support system he struggled and made mistakes. In his 50s he ended up on the streets of Atlanta living in a tent, struggling with addiction. Sheriff has a strong work ethic and loves the Village Hope dog JoJo. At age 59, he was gifted his first new bike through a partner ministry, and he was so proud of it with a community rallying around him! He finds joy in working and being welcomed and accepted for who he is.

His illness and mistakes shouldn’t define him.

Now Sheriff is in a long-term program recovering and with a community that can guide him and help him find his purpose.


Meet Gary

Gary is all smiles! He can draw and write beautifully, he is so creative and gifted with so much to give. Gary’s spirit is gentle and kind, but he struggles with severe mental illness that he didn’t choose. Being on the streets makes routine medical care nearly impossible to manage, a place like Village Hope  to receive medical treatment may of prevented him from facing death.

Stabbed one night while sleeping at the park, he barely lived and had no one to visit him and help him find a place for recovery. Through Village Hope he wasn’t alone and he’s now in a community, off the streets, and on regular medication.  He is in a place to find his purpose and express his talents.

Mission Statement

What's Next?

Building friendships in everyday life, meeting people where they are, and consistently showing up.


Create a safe space and resource center for mail delivery, place to help find housing and employment, mental health assistance, long term recovery options, addiction, etc.

The Goal

To become a self sustained nonprofit through revenue generated from the theater/event space.

The Plan

Restore an abandoned, historical Theater into an event space while using the offices upstairs to home the nonprofit.
