Mission Christmas Project
Imagine what it would be like if you could not afford to give even a single present to your child for Christmas. Now imagine that you and your children did not have a home and were forced to live in a rescue mission.

This year hundreds of women & children will call a local rescue mission home. Some of these women have been victims of battery and abuse, some have sought shelter for drug or alcohol related problems, and some just have no where to go. Local rescue missions provide them with food, shelter, clothing, counseling, and much more, to help them get their lives back on track.

These rescue missions receive donations of toys, and clothing, so the children there do not go without food, shelter or presents at Christmas. Their mothers, however, have no jobs or money, and are unable to give Christmas presents to their own children!

You can help us restore dignity to these women by helping them give to their own children this Christmas!

Since 1995, the "Mission Christmas Project" has raised money to help these women give their children Christmas presents. In years past our goal every year was to raise enough money to give each mother a $100.00 gift certificate per child, and take them shopping for their children before Christmas. We would also try to give gift certificates to each of the mothers in the shelter, including those whose children are not living there with them in the shelter.

Over the past few years our mission has evolved to year-round projects to assist the homeless, at risk elderly, and indigent homeowners on a case by case basis. As our scope has grown, so has our need for funds. We have re-designed our Mission Christmas project to use the funds we raise more efficiently, while maintaining the original intent of the program: To help restore their dignity and provide hope that the future will welcome them.

This year, we will go to them at the Atlanta Mission. We will bring the women "Life Packs" filled with personal items they need on a daily basis,

100% of all funds raised go directly to the women or to help fund our other projects throughout the year. There are no paid staff at Resurrecting Hope, Inc. Please click on About Us for more information about Resurrecting Hope, Inc., what we do. Read the Letter of Recommendation written by former Atlanta Union Mission CEO David Coleman.

We need money the most!

Last year our we raised over $25,000.00! That made a lot of women and children happy! (Be sure to browse through our picture archive to see where your money actually goes!). This year our goal is to raise $30,000.00 as there are more women and children each year, as well as other projects throughout the year. Please search your heart, and your wallet, for a donation of any size will not only provide gifts for the children, but dignity to the mothers, by allowing them to give to their children this Christmas.

We will be taking
Christmas to the women & children on Saturday, December 17th, 2011 at "My Sisters House", the women's shelter division of the Atlanta Mission.
