Mission Statement

It is our mission to provide free access to individuals in poverty both nationally and internationally by feeding, clothing, educating and providing free healthcare to one family household at a time. We do not work for ourselves or even for one another; we work for the greater good.

Description

Place of Hope began in 2002 to help restore personal dignity and provide basic necessities to economically disadvantaged individuals, senior citizens, the disabled, the unemployed and families in need. We provide basic needs (food, clothing, quality health care) to residents within 5 counties (Clayton, Henry, Fulton, Delkab, and Fayette); The Place of Hope has partnered with several organizations, business, and churches, including: Intersect Company, Caring for Others, United Way. In recent years we have expanded our reach of hope and dignity by developing partnerships with agencies in and around Georgia. In May 2018, the Place of Hope Clinic was established to provide free healthcare to individuals who are uninsured or underinsured, living at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.

Place of Hope Clinic is opened every Sunday and Wednesday from 12-3pm and provides the following services: primary healthcare, mental health services, women's health, and health education.
