Frontline Response Update

In February, Atlanta Dream Center became Frontline Response. Our mission is the same -- we continue to be on the frontlines every day, responding to the calls of individuals in crisis, rescuing men and women out of homelessness and sex trafficking, and preventing the most vulnerable, our children, from falling victim.

Since our last newsletter, we have seen:
  • 19 individuals rescued out of sex trafficking and exploitation and
  • 33 individuals rescued out of homelessness.

God has been at work in amazing ways -- through our faithful partners, our dedicated staff, our weekly outreaches, our visiting mission teams, and our committed volunteers -- morning by morning, new mercies we see.  From all of us at Frontline, many thanks to each of you for joining us on this journey and making a meaningful difference in the lives of so many!

From Frontline:
"Our most recent rescue out of homelessness and substance abuse involved a woman with whom we had been working for over a month. Watch this message from our CEO, Dan Palmer, to hear the rest of her story!"

Join us in our fight to end homelessness by participating in the 2nd annual Night Without a Bed!  We’re challenging you, as part of our Family Promise community, to be willing to sleep without a bed on the night of June 26th. You will embark on a mission to raise awareness for the on-going issue of family homelessness within Gwinnett County, while raising funds to help us end homelessness one family at a time. Ready to get involved?
 
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to reach the Family Promise of Gwinnett's fundraising goal of $500 per individual. On the night of June 26th, we ask our participants to sleep anywhere without a bed: cars, tents, a tree house, your living room floor, or a couch; and share your experience on social media using the hashtag: #FPOGnightwithoutabed. 
 
Sign up as an individual, team, or congregation to raise funds and compete in the challenge against others in the Family Promise community! The top 3 congregations will receive a trophy to display in their halls! Trophies will also be given for the top three individual and top three team fundraisers. 
 
Create your fundraising page by clicking here. Send out emails to your friends and family asking them to support you in helping end homelessness in your community. Remember, your friends love you and what you support. 
 
Does $500 sound like a lot? Look at how you can reach the goal with just 15 donations!  
1 gift of $100

3 gifts of $50
5 gifts of $25

For questions, contact Carol Love at clove@familypromsiegwinnett.org or 404-552-1007.
 
***When you complete your mission of raising $500, you help us fulfill our mission to provide a bed for a child. Thus, you will gain the privilege of sleeping in your own bed AND receive a Family Promise Keeper T-shirt from Family Promise of Gwinnett!

Co-op Volunteer Opportunities
Several of you requested information of the duties of an intake volunteer:
Intake volunteers serve on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday anytime from 10am – 2p.
These volunteers assist with clients who come in for help with apartment rent, utilities or hotel lodging. They do not come in direct contact with the client; the collection of client documents, etc. is done by someone else.
For rental assistance, the intake volunteer will call the client, enter basic information like address, information on other adults and kids and process their food request. They will call the apartment complex or landlord to verify rent amount, extra charges, due dates, etc. Once verified, they will take the paperwork to the accounting office for a check.
For utility assistance, the same process happens, but of course will be calling the utility company.
For hotel lodging, the intake volunteer will contact the hotel, make a reservation and complete the appropriate paperwork.
Each new intake volunteer is placed with a seasoned volunteer for on the job training for as long as they feel is needed.

Check our website, www.ourncm.org,
for current needs
and donation hours.
