Meet our beneficiaries.

What began in 2007 as an initiative to partner with life-changing organizations in our communities and around the globe has grown into a movement of extraordinary generosity.

A Beacon of Hope

Nurse Practitioner

Due to COVID-19, more women are contemplating abortion for financial reasons such as unemployment and job insecurity. These funds help A Beacon of Hope hire a full-time nurse practitioner which will allow them to see approximately 400 additional patients per year.

Continued Expansion of Patient Care Services

A Beacon of Hope is looking to expand their services to ensure that all women, pregnant or not, receive adequate healthcare services—regardless of their access to insurance. This expansion includes offering pap smears, breast exams, fertility education, medical management, lactation consulting, birth control that does not disrupt a pregnancy in process, 24/7 online scheduling, and enhancements to the Bridge Long-Term Care program. These funds will be used to expand the current medical space, purchase the equipment and supplies required for the new services, as well as create new curriculum, purchase supplies, and offer speaker stipends for the program.


Amana Academy

Student Social and Emotional Support Team

Students are experiencing an increase in anxiety, stress, and trauma due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which directly impacts their opportunities to learn. This gift increases support to both students and staff by helping fund a Behavioral Support Specialist for grades K– 5 and a Behavioral Support Specialist for grades 6–8.



Brandywine Elementary School

At-Home Technology Support

Brandywine Elementary students who struggle academically are generally students who are economically disadvantaged. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of the 2020-2021 school year, it is imperative to ensure that all students have access to the technology they need to succeed in a virtual learning environment. These funds will be used to purchase 50 Chromebooks and Kajeets to improve the success of these students while they are learning at home.

Playground Improvements

COVID-19 social distancing requirements put restraints on the number of students allowed on the playground at Brandywine Elementary. These funds cover the purchase and installation of additional playground equipment to ensure that all students can enjoy recess while maintaining CDC safety guidelines.


Children's Development Academy

Scholarship Funding Support

The CDA is a vibrant organization that has provided outstanding service to low-income, hardworking families and their young children for more than 45 years. Despite reduced funding, canceled fundraisers, and increased expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CDA does not want to raise fees. This gift will support operating expenses, allowing for a decrease in fees for parents and an increase in scholarships for 150 families.

Staff Holiday Bonuses

CDA desires to offer well-deserved bonuses to their hardworking staff this year but lacks the extra funds to do so. This gift funds bonuses for each staff member in December.





Elkins Pointe Middle School

Remote Learning Devices

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, students need to virtually attend classes during at least part of the 2020-2021 school year. It is vital that all students have access to technology to ensure that proper learning continues in virtual learning environments. This gift pays for mobile hotspots for children who need reliable internet connections in order to thrive during virtual learning.

Student Emergency Fund

It is important for students to have their physical needs met in order to be fully present and ready to learn at school. This donation will ensure that students can eat lunch—even when they do not have money—and give them access to clothing and hygiene kits as needed. In addition, this donation also supports student families needing help with expenses such as rent, groceries, or gas. These measures help reduce student absences and tardiness, meet students’ health, social, and emotional concerns, and increase student achievement.


Foster Care Support Foundation

Operations Assistance

Foster Care Support Foundation serves more than 4,500 foster children by providing for their basic care needs. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, giving patterns have changed and important volunteer support is nonexistent. These funds allow FCSF to continue to support foster children by alleviating some of the financial burden placed on caregivers who are living on a fixed income.



Fulton County School District

Emergency Student Assistance

When students have their basic needs met, they are better able to focus and thrive at school. This donation assists students by providing for any needs that may arise, such as eye glasses, clothing, shoes, school supplies, personal hygiene products, and even prescriptions.

Mental Health Resources

Students with social, emotional, and medical challenges can benefit from additional resources that help improve their educational experience. This donation funds mindfulness activities, games, self-help books, and other mental health resources which enable social workers and school counselors to better support and work with their students with disabilities.


HomeStretch

Youth Tutoring

HomeStretch seeks to promote high self-esteem and academic achievement for the youth in their transitional housing. This gift will be used to provide certified tutors to help students perform at their grade level and prepare for higher education.

Mortgage Debt Reduction

HomeStretch provides supportive housing and programs that help homeless working families regain and sustain permanent housing in the greater north metro Atlanta area. This gift will help pay down the mortgage at one of their properties, which will reduce their monthly payments. This, in turn, will allow them to reallocate funds toward additional programs and funding for their clients.

Providing Stability for Homeless Families

These funds will allow HomeStretch to continue supporting families struggling with homelessness through counseling, life skills classes, and money management assistance.



No Longer Bound

Regeneration Program

No Longer Bound recently completed construction of their new 56-man dorm which allows them to accept 16 additional men per year. Each client pays for his first 90 days of treatment, and the remaining months are covered by donors. These funds offset the increased expenses incurred in supporting these additional men.

Scholarship for Admissions

A spike in addiction and relapse caused by COVID-19 has resulted in an increased number of individuals seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addictions. It is also becoming increasingly difficult within the current economy for new clients to raise the funds needed to enter No Longer Bound's program. This donation will provide scholarship money for three to four men who are beginning their journey toward recovery.

Marketing Studio Equipment

During the COVID-19 crisis, No Longer Bound continued to connect with their community and the extended NLB family through the sharing of stories of hope and healing on social media. Moving forward, NLB would like to expand beyond their local community through digital content and podcasts, with the goal of offering hope and encouragement to anyone impacted by addiction. These funds will cover the cost of all podcasting equipment, video/production equipment, computers and software, and the construction and build-out of a production space.


North Fulton Community Charities

Growing with Purpose Capital Campaign

In 2018, NFCC launched a capital campaign driven by the increased demand for emergency assistance and family enrichment programs. Due to COVID-19, requests for emergency financial assistance increased over 100%. This gift assists NFCC in meeting deadlines for the release of significant capital funding as they continue to meet the needs of the community in North Fulton, while operating during a global pandemic.

New Vehicle for Food Pantry

Having reliable and affordable vehicles is imperative to keeping the Food Pantry at NFCC well-stocked for families in need in North Fulton County. These funds will help them replace their largest vehicle with a smaller van that will take up less space in the parking lot and reduce service and insurance costs. As an additional benefit, more staff members will be comfortable driving the smaller vehicle.

Operating Expenses

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed significant strains on the operating budget of NFCC due to increased demand for financial assistance from the community and decreased revenue from the closure of the Thrift Shop. These funds will go toward unrestricted funding of indirect operating costs for facilities, equipment, staff, and technology.



Pathways2Life

Operations and Development of Greenhouse Model

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Pathways2Life had to engage new methods of delivery and redevelop materials to match the ever- changing mental health needs of schools, teens, and their families in Fulton County. They accomplished this through a blended approach of online and in-person strategies they call the "Greenhouse Model" of engagement. This gift helps fund operational costs and continue the development of this new model.

The Drake House

After School Program Facility Expansion

These funds will go toward creating a dedicated space for the students of The Drake House to either complete their homework or do virtual learning should the need arise. This space enables their mothers to remain focused on finding stable housing and financial security.

Operating Expenses

The operating expenses of the Drake House have increased by 15 percent due to the need for a full-time maintenance manager and necessary maintenance upgrades. They have also needed to increase the hours of their Teen Coordinator to fully support their growing population of high school seniors and recent graduates. These funds assist with the increased operating expenses and allow The Drake House to improve programming and facility maintenance for their families.


The Summit Counseling Center

Student Support Therapy Groups

Group counseling offered in schools is a proven and cost-effective way to invest in young people as they wrestle with various issues. Uncertainty in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic has added to their stress. This gift helps fund 26 Summit On-Site-School-Based Therapy Programs so students can receive the counseling they need at no charge.

Telemental Health and Video Therapy

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced all health-care industries to quickly provide services on virtual platforms. These funds underwrite the cost for the ongoing transition to provide a HIPAA compliant platform for Summit's 35 therapists. This enables them to increase access to therapy services for those in need regardless of where they are.
