Our mission is to introduce innovative and effective social service and empowerment programs that encourage, educate, and improve the quality of life for those we serve.
The Rosebuds Program
The Rosebuds Program provides 1-on-1 case management services to individuals 18 years of age or older in the metro-Atlanta and surrounding areas. This program gives our clients access to basic necessities such as food, clothing, housing, transportation, job skills training, mentoring, and more sponsored by local and national community partners.
Please be aware that due to funding restraints and the onset of the Coronavirus crisis, our program is currently limited to the number of clients we can serve. Also, in order to ensure our clients' and volunteers' safety, we have elected to provide our services remotely. If you are someone in need of the above-mentioned services and are willing to commit to a strict and structured self-help program, apply here.
The Everyone Eats Program aims to stamp out hunger and provide solutions that can help end food waste and insecurity globally. By partnering with companies and organizations such as Goodr, Panera Bread, Walmart, Kroger, Publix, Ingle's Food, Sprout's, and other donors we have managed to distribute more than 1,500 pounds of food.
Unfortunately, during the first month of Coronavirus our food supply was depleted and our cabinets our bare. We are currently accepting donations of non-perishable food items, grocery store gift cards, and public grant funding to replenish our supply and to begin serving our neighbors in need. If you would like to donate, please use this Donation Drop-Off form to schedule a drop-off date and time or click here to submit an online donation via PayPal.
We will make an announcement informing the public once we restock our shelves.
Clean the Block
It's up to us to keep our communities clean! CFTH has partnered with Keep DeKalb Beautiful to support their environmental protection initiative. During the months of March through October, our volunteers meet monthly to clean up neighborhood blocks in the Memorial Dr. corridor area along Village Square and up to Hambrick Rd.
Unfortunately, this year our program was forced to postpone and start trash pickup again in 2021. If you would like to become a sponsor or volunteer for this program. Please apply here. All adult volunteers are required to submit to a background check in order to supervise youth volunteers.
