Meet today’s Charity Spotlight: Chosen Destiny Foundation. The Chosen Destiny Foundation is a non profit organization based in Atlanta, GA with one goal, to try and end homelessness in the state of Georgia.
Chosen Destiny Foundation Mission: To provide food, support services, and an avenue to self-sufficiency for homeless adults in our community. We believe that all people deserve the basic necessities of life, and the community in which we live is called to serve this purpose. We hope to restore hope to the homeless and hurting individuals in Atlanta. We believe Jesus calls us to open our arms wide as the need grows. We will continue to expand our services and develop innovative programs as the complexities of homelessness change. We will proclaim and demonstrate the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ, meeting the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of men, women and children who are homeless or in need of hope.
Often, individuals and families have cycled in and out of homelessness for years, driven by addiction, wrong relationships, financial problems and poor job skills. Chosen Destiny plans to change that they recognize it can take months of extensive counseling, study and guidance to help men, women and children through the recovery process. To this end, Chosen Destiny plans to help them take advantage of life-skills classes in budgeting, nutrition, decision-making, setting goals, anger management, addiction relapse prevention and more to stabilize and prepare to live independently. One-on-one counseling combined with support groups and Bible study help each replace old, destructive habits with new attitudes of responsibility, accountability and self-confidence. Throughout recovery, they also encourage residents to identify and deal with physical and mental health issues that, without treatment, may inhibit their ability to realize their full potential.
Their staff is committed to assist each individual with relapse prevention, food, clothing, reconciliation with family, spiritual maturity, education and job skills training, financial assistance, medical and mental health treatment, and with other issues that may stand in the way of being successful in life and finding stable housing.
Vision: To help in homeless in Metro Atlanta and surrounding areas. Also, to find long term employment and stable housing.
