The children at Mary Lin elementary have led two service projects at the Day Shelter and on both occasions the staff did a terrific job with promoting and setting up these events. Ginny is among the best volunteer coordinators around--totally flexible and enthusiastic.

The Great!

My exposure to the Day Shelter gave me greater insight into the challenges of homeless families. Ginny Nickles did a great job explaining the services and needs of the shelter to the elementary school children and their parents after the event finished.

I've brought groups from my church to work at the Shelter several times. The Shelter's been wonderful to work with. We've worked in the various closets such as clothing, children's, Christmas etc. sorting items and placing them. We've also organized an office area and done other things. I feel this is such an important charity as it not only gives to the women and children, and provides help for them, but it gives them needed skills to be able to go out and get work so that they can provide for themselves. The Shelter provides so much including food, medical care, computer training, job placement counseling, and so much more. I feel it's an outstanding charity and it's a pleasure to have worked with them. You get so much more out of working with the Shelter than you ever give.

I've experienced them by being there and seeing what's happening, but I also have kept up with them through written information they've provided. There's no way you could get aquainted with all they do without getting more exposure than just being there occasionally could give you.

Spending time at the Atlanta Day Shelter was an amazing experience and true eye-opener. The shelter and staff are absolutely wonderful. Serving a hot breakfast to dozens of very grateful women and children was time well spent. The experience gives one a lot of perspective, but it also made me appreciate just how selfless and kind the staff is, devoting their lives day in and day out. The Atlanta Day Shelter clearly does everything they can, but it is very easy to see that there will probably never be enough help, money, food, etc. to fight such an overwhelming cause. The day I was there we had hot coffee and we brewed numerous pots as it seemed to be a big hit with the women. I quickly learned they do not have coffee most days, so it was a bit of a treat that day. I would highly recommend getting involved to do whatever you can to help a very worthy organization.

The Great!

This was my first trip, but the smiles on the faces of the women and children when they got their breakfast and coffee was a clear reminder of why I was there.

They need more money, obviously.
