Surpassing our goal

Yesterday, we reached a goal that many thought was impossible! We hit our annual goal and made over 275 people in less than four months with the Mobile Makeovers bus!

After two and a half months of laboring to get the bus ready, the bus hit the road in May and has been giving people dignity since that historical month!

Today, we will begin to blow this goal out of the water by making more people over and connecting people to resources that will help them become self-sufficient!

Below is a picture of our 275th makeover! Thank you if you gave to this project!

Dignity Art

For the last year and a half, we have reached people from all walks of life! It has been an amazing journey, but recently God laid it upon our hearts to start working with guys transitioning out of homelessness in a different way! What way? I’m glad you asked. For the last two weeks, we have been showing guys how to take old reclaimed wood, and turn it into art – Dignity Art!

We have specifically worked with a guy named Bruce to build pieces of art, and allow our followers to make a bid toward those pieces (donating funds), and when the highest bidder wins, it creates an opportunity for us to compensate him for his work (employing him).

Below are a few pieces that he has designed, and two of his latest pieces. If you would like to learn more, email us at info@lovebeyondwalls.org or if you would like to have a phrase placed on wood, let us know!

Bruce makes art – Dignity Art

Check out this video! It highlights what Bruce has done with the art he has been making! He has made a piece for #dignityart that says, “Keep Moving Forward.” It you make a bid, we can employ him for a days worth of work. See how this is helping him fight homelessness.

Lives Changing – RaurFest2015!

Yesterday, we got a chance to set up our mobile unit in the heart of Downtown Atlanta at #raurfest2015, and serve the homeless population while a live concert was going on inside GA Freight Depot! We were able to complete 17 makeovers, and connect those that we served to resources they needed most.

Additionally, students from c5 & Usher’s New Look collected over 30 boxes of donations for those in need. Below are a few pictures from yesterday!11401488_885939391443227_4923298895248372687_n11168432_885953858108447_3873036795507818289_n

One person at a time – Mobile Makeovers

Yesterday, our team went out to serve those in need with the #mobilemakeovers bus, and it was amazing!

We encountered a gentlemen by the name of Harvey! At first he was apprehensive, but when he stepped on the bus he came to life, shared his story, and was open to all of the services we referred him to…

In fact, he said God sent the right people to me this morning! Check out his before and after picture below…
