We are just 25 days away from launching our film at the Center for Civil & Human Rights.
We’re looking for 15 volunteers who want to serve with our team on this special day!

Earlier this year, we started using creative housing to get people experiencing homelessness off the streets.
We’ve learned a lot about how hard it is to find a place to stay if you miss the cut off time for a shelter. Therefore, we started telling this story about excess. In this country we have so much excess, but we have yet to tap into this excess to solve “real time” problems.
A few months back, a generous family reached out to us and donated this brand new RV (equipped with a shower, a restroom, and living space).
They took their excess and said, “We want to see it help people…”
Therefore, we’ve decided to launch Atlanta’s first Mobile Shelter. It’s called Mobile Stay, and we are less than a month away from giving stays to those who have no safety net.

Over the last couple of months, our organization has been intentional about giving people experiencing homelessness untraditional housing to get them off of the streets, and provide a place to stay that’s safe.
If we can be honest, it’s been messy, hard, confusing, and fun all at the same time. We’ve laughed with them, have had the privilege of celebrating successes, and have talked through struggles.
Long story short, we’ve just taken what’s in front of us and have used it to serve those who are forgotten.
Little did we know that a family was watching our work with using trailers to provide housing. Well, this same family reached out and donated our organization this RV trailer! Wow is all we can say!
We can’t wait to reveal what this will become for our next campaign.
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.
Check out a few pictures below!

Yesterday, Johnny Taylor and I (Terence) got a chance to share a small piece of the #MAP16 journey with the public for the first time since we’ve been back from Washington, DC.
Additionally, we got a chance to share our “official” documentary trailer. Would you like to see it? Most of it was shot during the walk!
Hold on to your seats… It’s powerful.
Below are a couple of pictures:
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 and Johnny reached the White House, and a crowd of supporters marched with Terence all the way to the King Memorial where Terence delivered a speech entitled, “It’s Time To Do Something…”
Check out the picture below, and the final stretch video.
This Saturday, I’m going to speak from my heart to whoever comes out!
I’ve walked over 600 miles, have encountered tons of people in poverty, and have a burning desire to humanize their stories.
