ATLANTA -- Fulton County Youth Commissioners will take to the streets of Atlanta and Fulton to distribute H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Everyday) Boxes on Saturday, Mar. 23 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Youth Commissioners will assemble at the Fulton County Government Center starting at 8 a.m. and distribute H.O.P.E Boxes to locations used by the homeless, primarily in District 5.
The primary purpose of the H.O.P.E. Box initiative is to disseminate information regarding sources for assistance in low-income areas throughout Fulton County. Each box includes a H.O.P.E. resource card, which highlights County services. Information is provided regarding how and where to find shelter, rehabilitation, health services, employment search assistance and other programs offered by Fulton County and collaborating organizations that are designed to help homeless citizens to achieve stability and an improved quality of life.
