It's easy to view homelessness as a problem. But homelessness has a face and a name. Our friends who are in the cycle of homelessness don't need to be fixed, but they do need to be loved. You can join us in practically serving and doing life with them by coming to Atlanta on a short term trip.
- Mission Teams are groups who wish to serve for one or more days at SHO, with many teams staying overnight. Schedules, projects, and activities are customized to meet each team’s ages, needs, talents, and desires. Mission Teams provide a sustainable revenue stream as each team serving at SHO is required to pay a fee for each member’s programming and housing.
- Total Immersion provides groups of individuals or a team a glimpse of what a day is like in the life of those experiencing homelessness. With very minimal possessions and full-time guidance of a trained staff member, they must obtain their own meals, secure shelter for the night, live as part of the homeless community, and find their way back to SHO. In order to participate in Total Immersion trips, participants must be at least 18 years old and become approved for experience.
