Lazarus is an Atlanta-based organization that comes alongside our homeless neighbors and helps them meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Lazarus’ focus is simple; acknowledging the human dignity found in every person, homeless or not, and investing in relationships that encourages life change. They meet weekly with men and women and share conversations, provide resume writing workshops, financial classes for women and art therapy in the local shelters. Every year they facilitate four major events downtown with the homeless; Health Day, Super Bowl Party, Christmas Dinner, and a Neighborhood Beautification Day.
Lazarus Ministries started with two people serving about 20 homeless men and women in the year 2000. Today, Lazarus has a monthly base of 50 volunteers serving around 5000 homeless men, women, and children. For special events, the volunteer base consists of 300-500 individuals serving 500-1500 homeless individuals per event.
