This week, Love Beyond Walls got an amazing opportunity to support many students experiencing homelessness at Frank McClarin High School. We recently learned that many students in this school are fighting homelessness as they try to gain an education to better their lives.
The school is located less than a mile away from our Center in College Park.
With the support of many generous donors, we were able to provide resources to single teen mothers and the daycare housed at the school.
As days go on, we will continue working with this school and among its students. Why? Because we see education being a tool that can be used to overcome the plight of poverty.
Thank you for you continued support of our work!
We are starting to collect new or gently used purses for women that we will serve next month in partnership with Solomon’s Temple.

Kentucky to Atlanta!
This week starts our “Spring Break & Love” days of service around the community and in the heart of downtown Atlanta.
We are excited to have a group traveling here from Kentucky to serve with us multiple days to provide love and hope to the many people we will encounter during our time together.
This past Sunday, we were invited to share our #MAP16 story in Shreveport, LA [Shreveport Convention Center] to over 5K people!
Not only did we get a chance to share some of our clips, but we challenged people to consider the poor, understand the realities of the poor, and create margin in their personal lives to notice people.
We are excited about starting our editing process this week as we prepare to share our March Against Poverty story with the world.
During this season, take time to notice those who are poor, and consider what really matters.
“Love is a powerful force,” Terence explains. “God is love, and we are on a mission to take that love into places where there is darkness and hopelessness, despondency and all those different things keeping people in the cycle of being oppressed.”

This past Friday, we got a chance to partner with Woodward Academy to serve hundreds of people for #FeedTheNeed.
Not only did we hang out with families to give them hope for the Holiday, but we had a wonderful surprise to take place.
The Atlanta Hawks came to our headquarters with “Harry the Hawk,” several representatives from the Hawks organization, and Kaiser to present our Executive Director [Terence] with an award [#TrueToAtlantaAward] for the #MAP16 journey.
Additionally, the Hawks got a chance to hang out with the community and encourage them along with us.

RECAP: Yesterday, over 700 students marched for #MAP16 in Atlanta, GA with Terence to raise awareness about poverty and homelessness among students.
It was an amazing experience to partner with Deerwood Academy to educate students about this important issue in our nation.

Yesterday, Terence literally saw a sign that said 44 miles until Washington, DC. We are estimating that it will take 4 more days for Terence & Johnny to arrive at the finish line.
Earlier this week, we received our official permit to end at the march/walk at the King Memorial to do a press conference on poverty in the U.S. (in partnership with the SCLC)
If you’d like to meet us there, we’ll see you in Washington in 4 DAYS.
