Updated: 4 days ago
H.O.M.E.'s Mission: Extending Love to the Home; Restoring Hope in the Heart; and offering Help through Healing Hands to Single Mothers facing Hardship.
H.O.M.E., Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization founded to help Single Mothers who are working and/or going to school, survive the ‘tough times’ and persevere towards an ‘appointed time’ for success in life. They provide immediate resources to rebuild, restore and refurnish homes of Moms emerging from divorce, domestic violence, incarceration or in desperate need of starting over.
Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure's main focus is to continue to provide aid to mothers and their children throughout the 10 metro Atlanta counties. Eager to aid in the COVID-19 relief process as our single mothers, grandmothers and children struggle to recovery from this devastating pandemic, H.O.M.E. prepares to embark upon this very long journey to recovery from the Coronavirus and its aftermath.
