Never Alone Events
Never Alone can only do what it does with generous donors who support the ministry. We are not supported by any churches in the area and must rely on community members and volunteers to provide financially so that we can provide for the less fortunate in our community. For every $1 dollar received, we are able to purchase $8 in food from the Atlanta Food Bank. In 2016, we served 5,145 families, representing 18,489 individuals, and gave out 356,555 pounds of food to the hungry through the Never Alone Food Pantry. We processed over 90,000 items in the Never Alone Clothing Outreach Center. We sponsored our families at Thanksgiving and made sure their children did not go without at Christmas. But most importantly, we built some great relationships with people who needed to just have someone care. Today, we continue to provide vital connections to food, clothing, and to God through our ministry.
To help offset our operating costs, and to help prepare for upcoming expansion projects, we will be sponsoring our first annual fund raisers to help us keep up with the ever growing need in our community. Please mark you calendars and save the dates for these two worthwhile events.

Through the Eyes of A Child Program
Imagine being a child on Christmas morning. The anticipation, the excitement, the joy -- it's all there until you wake up and there is nothing under the tree. Imagine being a parent who has to make the choice between paying the rent or buying Christmas gifts. Last year our sponsors provided Christmas to 200+ needy children. This year, that need will double, so we are partnering with Through the Eyes of A Child to help meet this need.
If you are a registered client of Never Alone, we invite you to apply for your children. Applications will only be accepted from October 5 to December 8 only.
If you would like to sponsor a child, there is no deadline. We accept sponsorships for this program year-round. Please click the Sponsor A Child button to read more information about the program.
If you would like to donate financially to this program, please click the Donate Now button and designate your contribution to Through the Eyes of A Child. Thank you so much!
