Mission: Hope offers church teams, families, students and others an immersive and transformative overnight experience on the campus of City of Refuge, Atlanta's largest homeless shelter for women and children, called The 1:8 Experience. The 1:8 Experience is a physical resource to help groups live out the Great Commission and Great Commandment locally and globally.

The experience is immersive. All volunteers will stay on campus in our space, and will share nearly all meals with our residents. The 1:8 Experience includes interactive learning about healthy and transformative community development, hands on community service projects that may include work with other local charity partners, and relational activities with the women and children residents on campus. The experience can range from one day to an entire week and are great for short term church trips, college alternative breaks, or small groups and families to participate in together.

See first-hand what material poverty looks like in an urban Atlanta setting as well as the countries Mission: Hope serves, and explore how you can help make a difference.
