Our Story
The seeds for Cause for Hope were planted in 2008 when several discrete ministries for unhoused people were operating out of a storefront church in downtown Atlanta. When the church lost its space in 2011 due to inadequate funding, these programs branched out on their own: a vibrant addiction recovery program that also addresses mental health issues; an extensive clothing closet; prison and legal aid outreach. It was clear by the number of people who continued to participate in and benefit from these services that important needs in the neighborhood were being met. So in September 2013 the various programs came together under the umbrella of the non-profit, Cause for Hope.
The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted, uncared for, and deserted by everybody. The greatest evil is the lack of love and charity, the terrible indifference toward one's neighbor who lives at the roadside, assaulted by exploitation, corruption, poverty and disease. −Mother Teresa
