Here is the information about Toys for Tots. Open Hearts is not involved in this effort and doesnt provide toys for children outside of the mission, but we appreciate the effort the Jaycees puts forth for our community.
We have plenty of male and female space available at the mission. If you or someone you know is seeking shelter, please call us at 912-623-2528. We will need to speak directly to the person applying. If we do not answer at the time of the call, we return calls in a timely manner. We do not offer rental/utility or grocery assistance, but we will certainly try and help point in the right direction. Family rooms are filled at this time. Please keep in mind that this is a homeless mission, not a motel for out of town guests traveling during the holidays. ... See more
A Christmas memory from 2020. One of the questions we get from the children is, "can Santa get in here without a chimney?" Why most certainly!! He always figures out a way. It's about time to start trimming our tree.
Our cutest little turkey is learning to smile and entertaining us all. He enjoyed his milks while the grown ups enjoyed all the Thanksgiving yumminess.🦃❤
From our house to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.

We want to be able to return phone calls, but have been having a difficult time dialing out for the last couple of weeks. We are aware of the area code addition to local phone numbers, but still some numbers simply will not work. Also, if you call, please speak slowly and clearly when leaving your phone number.
What a special gift we received today from Pamela Evans Hill! We will find a special place for it at the mission.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. -- Melody Beattle
We are humbled and comforted by the outpouring of love and prayers during our time of loss. Please continue to pray for the family of Ms. Lisa and for the residents.

We have male and female availability at this time.
We have the following dates available in November for our 6pm meal if anyone would be interested. 6th 12th 17th 19th 26th 29th 30th If you are interested, please contact us at 9126232528 or comment/message us. Thank you so much!!!
This is a good description of the kind of person Ms. Lisa was: "Live your life from your heart. Share from your heart, and your story will touch and heal people's souls." ~ Melody Beattie
