Our Purpose

Atlanta Mission has been called by God to serve the city of Atlanta.

Atlanta Mission, which was formerly called Atlanta Union Mission, was initially established in 1938 as just a soup kitchen. Along the way, Atlanta Mission decided to expand our services to better serve the people we set out to help in the first place. And no longer were just men the ones we wanted to help, but women and children as well. Today, Atlanta Mission provides people in Atlanta and the metropolitan area with emergency shelter, residential discipleship, job attainment services and transitional housing. Our Christian non-profit organization provides not only a place to go, but also life resources for more than 950 homeless men, women and children on a daily basis.

Our Values

  • Shine

     We recognize that the deepest need of anyone is a relationship with Christ, therefore we celebrate steps of courageous faith.

  • Serve

     We believe we are responsible for the time, talent and treasures that are entrusted to us by God. By becoming humble servants to those in need we believe God changes lives, including our own.

  • Pour

     We invest in the spiritual, personal and professional development of people, restoring and equipping them to intentional living. We believe that in empowering and coaching people towards excellence, we impact the quality of all we do.

  • Transform

    We believe sustainable life change starts with the redeeming power of Christ and is best accomplished through life on life relationships.
