Atlanta Union Mission Corp.
December 19, 2009

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

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

visiting the various centers for men and women has given me a chance to meet the clients and talk to them to discover just how critical the AUM is to helping the most needy in our society

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the program scope to provide assistance to families. Today the facilities only accomodate Men in certain facilities and Women and children in the others

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Meeting the clients, learning their story, and being blessed by the experience

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great Christians who consider their roll to be not just a job, but a calling from God to help others. They are dedicated and competent.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

could help a lot more people. The organization has capital needs to improve programs. It also could use capital to grow the Thrift stores business which would generate program income for many years to come

Ways to make it better...

I spent more time in volunteer activities. My experience is always positive. I always receive more than I expect in terms of blessings. Perhaps the best way to to enhance the experience would be to devote more time to AUM

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The challenge for AUM is to get the message out that while they do give emergency care to the clients, they are even more involved with helping the clients break the chains of addiction and reenter society as productive citizens

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Mission is a good steward of the gifts and support that the people of Atlanta and Georgia provide to them. There is very little govenment suport. This is truly supported through the generosity of the good people of Georgia.
