Wonderful place that I now call home on Tuesday nights. I volunteer with the children weekly and love hearing their stories of how Atlanta Mission has helped them and their moms have a place to stay.

Review from Guidestar
I've volunteered here numerous time and it is really cool to see the changes they are having on the lives of the people they serve. The men at the shelter are super appreciative and love the volunteers. The organization seems great and really serve a need in the city
Despite numerous attempts I cannot get the Atlanta Mission to remove me from their mailing list. I made a small donation to them a few years ago on behalf of a third party and now receive on average a mailing a week. They've long ago eaten up any money I donated and refuse to stop sending additional solicitations despite multiple emails and phone calls.
Review from CharityNavigator
Definitely think leader of this non profit is out of touch with the true issues of homelessness. All of the money is NOT going to this charity!
The leader of this organization seems out-of-touch with the real needs of the people; Too much funding going into a few people pockets and not enough into the program. There needs to be a leader who understands social problems and who are in touch with the challenges of poor people.
I have been taking a group of men down to the AUM to serve b'fast every other Thursday for the last year. I sit with the men and listen to their situation. I try to encourage them with prayer and a kind word. It is more of a blessing for me than it is for them. The staff are individuals going through the progam. They are empathetic and responsive to the needs of the folks just joining the program. I see God at work at the Mission in so many different ways. All are blessed who come in contact with the program.
I have been involved with AUM for over a decade. It is truly hard to explain the sense of fullfillment that I receive when I hear the testimony of those men and women who have fallen through societies' saftey net and were in dispair until their life was turned around because they encountered Christ through AUM. They know that they are loved and worthwhile. This changes everything. AUM provides emergency relief,but even more important, hope
I began by serving on the Atlanta Union Mission Board in 1976 with the idea that I could provide assistance as a physician to the new influx of clients with mental illness. Since that year I have been on the Board in one capacity or another, however not in the role as physician. My involvement became much deeper with service on committees, to providing gifts for clients, to raising money, and even to chairing the Board. Whenever I think that I might have completed my service over 33 plus years I am convinced and compelled to remain as a volunteer and Board member, hoping that I can contribute in any other or new way to this fine organization.
My husband and I have been blessed by serving at Atlanta Union Mission for the last 26 years. We began with what we thought was a one time volunteer painting day and we have never looked back. We have watched so many lives saved from addition and homelessness through the love of the caring staff. It is indeed a privilege to serve the Lord by ministering to the men and women of Atlanta Union Mission.
