Reviews for Buckhead Christian Ministry, Inc.
I have been a financial contributor for about 5 years. I first heard of BCM when our church listed it as a charity it supports because of the work BCM does, its successes with families in our community, and the high percentage of donations that go right back into the community. BCM provides the basics (rent, food, heat, clothing) to families and individuals in need until they can get back on their feet, and become self-reliant.
