Judaism teaches that helping fellow human begins in need, tzedakah, is not simply a matter of charity, but of responsibility, righteousness and justice. The Reform Movement has always acted upon fundamental Jewish ideals by advocating for children, the poor, the disenfranchised, the elderly, the sick, those with disabilities, and the “stranger among us.”'

 

Family Promise of North Fulton/Dekalb (Sinai Family Shelter)

Sinai Family Shelter is an affiliate of Family Promise North Fulton/Dekalb whose mission is to reduce the negative impact of sudden life-changing events that leave dedicated parents and their children without a home. Learn more about our Sinai Family Shelter here. 

 

Community Assistance Center

When you give your gently used clothing and home goods to CAC, you help support neighbors in need.

Clothing and home goods in CAC’s thrift shop, Upscale Thrift, are available to clients for free and the general public for sale. CAC gives clothing to about 300 individuals a month, allowing them to use their income on rent and utilities instead. Sale proceeds go back into programs to prevent hunger and homelessness.

CAC accepts donations of clean, gently worn clothes, shoes, accessories, linens, small home goods and furniture. All donations are tax-deductible! Click here for the list of items needed.
