Each Sunday, homeless people, many coming from the county shelter and the county jail, attend worship service and Bible study in NW Atlanta.
Fish House Recovery Program
The “Fish House,” a ministry of Jesus Place Inner City Mission, is a 6-12 month program designed to encourage, equip and disciple homeless men with the goals of achieving quality employment, housing, restoration to family and active membership in a local church body. Clients are studying basic Christian doctrine, actively participating in church, restoring relationships, and developing their careers all while maintaining sobriety in this very vital program. Our motto is “Fishing for Men, Equipping Men to Fish.”
Tri-Cities Food Cooperative Program
In collaboration with Tri-Cities Church, Fulton Co. Schools social workers, and the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Jesus Place offers a food security ministry weekly. Families in need are identified through the social workers who join the co-op and food is distributed to these families. Each cooperative meets twice a month. Throughout a year, the food cooperative program distributes over 40 tons of food. Food security stabilizes families in schools that experience nearly 50% attrition rates.
Jesus Place invites Juniors and Seniors in college as well as adults to participate in Summer, 8-12week, or year-long internships. Our goal is to expose and equip interns for future work in America’s cities. Due to current financial challenges, interns must raise 100% of their living expenses/stipend.
