A Message of Gratitude
from Joseph Mole, Executive Director
It seems hard to believe that my tenure with Emmaus House began just three months ago. In that short space of time, I’ve been humbled and amazed by your generosity and by the resilience of our neighbors here in Peoplestown.
Generosity and resilience.
It seems that these two phenomena characterize so much of the work that you make possible at Emmaus House, and it is a distinct privilege to bear witness to both.
This past summer, with your support, we were able to touch the lives of over 100 children and youth through Camp Summer Hope, our Middle School Arts Program, and Summers Away. That number is equal to nearly half of the students at our local elementary school. And through the Lokey Center, our neighborhood drop-in center, you’ve helped us to provide over 4,660 individual services for adults and families so far this year. These services, which include helping people obtain their Georgia ID and connecting them to necessities such as food, clothing, and furniture, remove significant barriers that keep families from experiencing stability in their daily lives.
Simply put, we could not do this work without your prayers and financial support.
Thank you for playing a part in removing barriers and creating opportunity for our neighbors in Peoplestown.
The Emmaus House team is focused and energized for the future as we seek new and innovative ways to deliver our program services. In the coming months, you’ll hear inspiring stories of transformation and resilience from some of our recent program participants. We invite you to connect more deeply with us as we approach the end of 2014 and lay the foundation for an exciting new chapter ahead of us.
Thank you for your generous support of our mission.
Grace and peace,
Joseph D. Mole, LMSW
