HomeStretch gives homeless parents and their children a safe and comfortable place to live while simultaneously helping them address the root causes of their situation and return to a life of self-reliance and stability.

Many have even increased their income through job skills training and improved employment. They are always looking for family and budget mentors as well as many other volunteer opportunities For more information, email Carol Swan or visit Homestretch.org.
Restoration ATL was created to help redefine local missions in the city. The leaders of RATL (pronounce rattle–as in Ez 37:7) were not interested in starting another mission opportunity in the city for those in the suburbs to drive in, drop off, and drive away–creating a transaction-like experience. No, our desire was to create an environment where being with was valued over doing for–which in turn would lead to transformation for all. For more information, please contact Local Outreach.
