Mission

To provide a consistent supply of hygiene essentials and clothing to our veterans in need and our homeless communities of the Greater Atlanta area.

Notes from the nonprofit

We all know 2020 has been a unique and challenging year for many, if not all of us. Despite the hardships, we are proud to say thanks to your generosity, over 800 homeless patrons received hygiene kits this year! On their behalf, we extend a heart-felt thank you for your help. We are so grateful to have supporters like you making what we do a possibility. ​ As we prepare to embark on our 2021 Campaign, we are taking a look back on all the lessons this past year has revealed to us and look forward to a new year of new possibilities. We want to take this opportunity to reset and re-focus. Our 2021 Campaign is to provide 2,021 hygiene kits to our homeless patrons in need by raising $10,000 by December 31, 2021. We can’t do it without help from generous supporters like you. http://gf.me/u/zfdn4s

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Since March 2020 when the world finally acknowledged the Coronavirus as a true Pandemic, HHNR has struggled to collect the needed supplies to create complete hygiene kits. Due to shortages in a number of the products that we use in our kits, and the limited amount of items one customer can purchase, we have been forced to decrease the amount of kits going out to the community in need. Though the safety of our staff and volunteers is first, the additional burden of not having our regular supply of hygiene (toilet paper, soap, deodorant, and toothpaste) has hurt our mission. HHNR is attempting to find the best way to reach the community to assist in collecting the supplies we need. We also raise monetary funds to help us go out to the factory retailers and purchase what we need when the donated items are low in supply. So the problem that needs to be addressed is getting our hygiene items up in stock to cover us until December (that is 150 -200 kits a month).

Day of Service

On a monthly basis HHNR has a Day of Service which averages up to 100 or more homeless patrons. We provide hygiene kits to these individuals each month as well as donated gently used clothing. This day of service is in collaboration with other nonprofit organizations who provide food, prayers other essentials and clothing for men and women. This service is currently held each first Saturday of the month.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Organizational goals first and foremost is to provide each homeless patron or veteran on the streets with a hygiene kit that will help decrease the chances of disease, increase their hygiene and provide them with the most essential items all humans need to function comfortably in society. Second goal of HHNR is to build transition housing and support services to those homeless veterans and other homeless men. This home will provide these men with hope, opportunity and chance to improve their lives and becoming productive members of society once again.

In the short 5 years that this organization has served the community the strategy in reaching the stated goals focused on the charity of our community businesses, leaders and everyday man and woman looking for a good cause to help. In addition to charity through monetary donations and supply drives, we have orchestrated an annual charity ball that serves as a fundraiser, marketing tool and of all things, a platform to thank our donors, volunteers and supportive community for helping us do what we do for the community.

For now, we will continue in the direction we have gone with hygiene drives and the charity ball but in addition to these strategies, we will move forward in reaching out to larger corporations for support both monetarily and through larger supply.

With a strong Board of Directors, dedicated donors, and an active giving community we have already set the foundation for organizational giving. Moving forward we will leverage the Board of Directors and their community affiliations, in the process of hiring a grant writer to help the organization find free/government support and finally with growing word of mouth and collaborations with other non-profits in the community, our mission spreads.

We have accomplished a strong following a support system in the community. We have partnered with some larger vendors and organizations for guidance, donations and support of our largest fund raiser annually. We have also changed our Board of Directors to reflect a more successful panel of individuals you can provide different services to the organization and the community we serve. This new group of individuals are full of ideas and strategies that will take HHNR to the next level.

Next steps will be to get passed the “new normal” in this pandemic and find the best way to serve the community while keeping safe. Adding another fundraiser during the spring and reach out to larger organizations like Proctor and Gamble, Coca Cola, General Mills, etc. to provide larger donations of hygiene items.
