Do you have a prayer request? Contact Silent Unity, a 24/7-prayer ministry at 1-800-NOW-PRAY (669-7729). Silent Unity uses “affirmative prayer.” Affirmative prayer is the same method of prayer Jesus taught when he said, “So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24). If, for example, one were to pray traditionally, one might say: “Please God, help me find a job.” By contrast, an affirmative prayer might be: “I am now guided to my right and perfect employment.”

A FREE Store is...
- A gift of love intended to help community members with various items they may need but can't afford. These items include food, clothing, household items and toiletries.
- A second hand store where everything is FREE.
- A place to up-cycle. Rather than throwing away good stuff that is no longer needed, many people donate things they no longer use to the FREE Store so that they can be used by someone who may actually need it.
- For EVERYONE, no proof of income or family size requirements. If you need it, come get it. Sometimes even people who work 40 hours a week need a little help. You are welcome at the FREE Store, no judgment and no questions asked.
In 2000, Covenant House Georgia opened its doors to provide shelter and services to Atlanta’s homeless and runaway youth. Covenant House Georgia is a full partner of Covenant House International, the largest privately funded agency in the United States providing shelter and services to homeless and at-risk youth. The guiding principle is unconditional love and a door that’s open 24/7. All services are free of charge. No youth who comes to our door is ever turned away without loving help. We are never too full to welcome them in, and we are never too busy to talk.
http://www.wrcdv.org Women's Resource Center To End Domestic Violence strives to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the diverse community of battered women and their children with programs that promote safety, compassion, connection, advocacy, and prevention. Each day we help survivors of domestic violence in Atlanta improve their safety by finding a safe place to stay, exercising their legal rights, exploring options and creating accountability for batterers. We greet women with compassion – no judgment, no second-guessing, and no shame. We provide connection - through relationships built with our staff, support groups and bonds forged with fellow safe house residents. By linking women with community supports and offering our services, we make sure no one has to take this walk alone.
