DOOR – Atlanta
Discovering Opportunities for Outreach and Reflection (DOOR) is a faith based network of urban service-learning programs that expose, educate, challenge, and motivate participants to respond to the issues and concerns facing an increasingly urban world. Program offerings range from a weekend to a year and include opportunities for individuals and groups.
Each Wednesday throughout this summer a different group of volunteers through the DOOR – Atlanta program will be visiting Clifton and rolling up their sleeves to pitch in with the day to day operations and to learn more about homelessness and what they can do back in their own hometowns to make a difference.
This week Clifton hosted a youth group from First Presbyterian Church in Palaski, TN. When our youth group volunteers arrive at Clifton the staff introduce themselves and our Volunteer Coordinator has them step back outside to begin a mock intake session to help them understand what our guests experience as they come to our Night Hospitality Program. They learn about all the different things we do at the Ministry, including Joe’s Place, Joe’s Ladder and Clifton Living. We offer them education on homelessness and sometimes they get to visit and talk to a couple of our guests and hear about their experiences.
Thank you First Presbyterian Youth Misson Group!
