About Us

Open Hearts Community Mission is a privately funded community-based 501(c)(3) Christian charity serving the residents of Bulloch County with High Standards, Strong Boundaries, and Clear Direction.  The Mission shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ by extending a hand-up, not a hand-out to our Friends and Neighbors.  Residents of the Mission must have a job.  If they do not have a job, their job is to get a job.  In the meantime they must work day labor.  All net earnings are deposited in the resident’s personal savings account.  This program does not costs the individual anything; it costs them everything.  It is open only to those who are willing to work, to save their earnings and to move forward in life.  Male residents must be able to lift 50 lbs.; women must be able to lift 35 lbs. All residents have a Case Manager, Mentor and Life Skills Coach.  Together with the resident they craft the goals, markers and duration of program.  Recipients of public benefits are not eligible for the program.  The Mission does not provide clinical services nor offer convalescence services.
