This Saturday at Whitehall, sponsored by our friends at ReStart 3:20 , we served over 45 existing street friends and newly unsheltered people. We start a little later in the morning at Whitehall and the sun had come out for a perfect day. Thanks everyone!!
This past Saturday, we had an army of BridgeBuilders on the street! Kathy, Julie and Renee were all out in force with Heather in backup, taking care of the individuals who have reached out to us for assistance with various issues. In particular, Bryant and Brian both returned for updates.
Bryant is having surgery on his foot and needed some care navigating the health care system and Brian got help replacing personal belongings which were stolen from he and his wife.
On Saturday, our old and wonderful friends from Granite Properties joined us on the street. The weather was just perfect and we had a great turnout with over 150 friends being served. Many, many sincere thanks to Granite Properties. We can’t wait to see you again soon!
It was a beautiful day at Whitehall on Saturday. We had over 40 friends come by to say hello, pick up a hot breakfast and grab a hygiene kit.
Adam and Heather were the Bridgebuilders at Edgewood this past weekend. They had two returning street friends come back to check up on the status of their assistance plan.
Last Saturday FTHP welcomed a new sponsor (and his friends): Rob Shipper! Everyone had a great time and we really enjoyed having Rob and his group join us serve our friends on the street. Please come back soon Rob, we loved having you and your friends be a part of our team!
At our sister location on Whitehall Ave., located at the ReStart 3:20 property, we had a glorious morning! Linda (one of our favorite volunteer friends who has since moved to Greenville, SC) came down extra early Saturday morning to help prep and serve and to hand out the remaining socks she’d received as a donation from Bombas.
Whitehall is slightly different from Edgewood in that we serve prepared meals (handmade at our warehouse) to a more personal crowd. Since we have fewer friends to serve and the meals are pre-made, this gives us more time to get know what is going on in their lives individually. Many times, we can direct them to services right inside ReStart 3:20. Of course, Bridgebuilders are also standing by to help link services to our friends.
Many thanks to Linda and Bombas for coming down to Atlanta for the day! You’re the best!
Our Bridgebuilders did a great job this weekend of dealing with some new issues that our street friends have been trying to manage on their own. In particular, our friend Keith got settled into a new residence due to the efforts of Bill S and Julie S. Many, many thanks to them and also thanks to Keith for stepping up and taking control of the issues that were keeping him out on the street.
It’s the Annual FTHP Kickoff Cookout, hosted by our friends at JE Dunn!
What a great day it was for Feeding the Homeless Project. At our Annual Kickoff Cookout, we recognize our volunteers and sponsors who’ve went the extra mile to serve our homeless and unsheltered friends in the previous year. It’s also a great opportunity to get together and share some delicious food catered by FTHP ‘Grill Master Emeritus’ Barry (and his wonderful mom) and to discuss our upcoming schedule with our returning and new sponsors.
It was a wonderful day for our volunteers, sponsors and supporters and we want to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who makes each Saturday a success. God bless and keep you all.
Although we were rained on this weekend, we weren’t rained out! Here we are, set up and ready to go!
