We partner with three incredible non-profit organizations that are working to bring hope and change to under-served communities throughout Atlanta. They use their resources and talents to make the city a better place to live, work, and call home. It is an honor to partner with them in their efforts, and we are so excited to share the work we create together!

The Partners

Based out of Clarkston, GA, the city TIME Magazine named the “most diverse square mile in America,” Refuge Coffee is on a mission to provide employment and job-training opportunities to resettled refugees through the business of hospitality. Their team renovated two large trucks into mobile coffee shops and travel around Atlanta serving delicious coffee and specialty drinks. They’ve also created a unique, vibrant coffee shop space in the heart of Clarkston where their belief in the power of “welcome” is making an impact as strong as the coffee. 
Good Samaritan Health Center is working to remove barriers preventing low-income families from obtaining access to quality healthcare in the Atlanta area. They are committed to serving a diverse population, where the entire family can receive quality healthcare in an atmosphere of dignity and respect, regardless of race, ethnicity, or religion. Individuals, families, and children in need can receive the following types of services at Good Sam: medical, specialty care, dental, mental health, nutrition counseling, spiritual care, health education, and food access/an urban farm. Since their founding in 1998, Good Samaritan has seen tremendous growth, serving 6,600 patients in their first year and nearly 39,000 patients in 2017.

Love Beyond Walls is a movement of doers. They exist to provide dignity to the homeless and poor by providing a voice, visibility, shelter, community, and access to support services, such as grooming stations and groceries for the food insecure. They believe that love is greater than walls and focus on sharing the stories of those who often go unseen. Through the provision of a wide-range of services and their commitment to love and serve people exactly as they are, they are making a tangible impact in the city of Atlanta and helping people achieve a life of self-sufficiency.
