This Ministry began as ten men gathered in late November, 2013 with the feeling of being called by God to serve the growing homeless population of Lumpkin County. North Georgia Interfaith Ministries, Inc. was incorporated on April 3, 2014 as a faith-based, 501c3 non-profit charity located in Dahlonega, Georgia.
The Ministry is directed by a volunteer Board of Directors chosen by the community-wide membership. The Board of Directors meets every other month to guide the Ministry. A general membership meeting is held every other month where the Board presents progress reports on the various services provided to the Homeless and member suggestions and input are welcomed.
Support from the local community has been great with numerous financial donations as well as much needed items of furniture and other items for the Homeless. As a first response, we provide them a “survival” kit with basic necessities.
The Ministry was truly blessed with a donation of 4 duplexes that have been moved onto 2 acres of land that was also generously donated. This location, also known as Jeremiah’s Place, will serve as the “Transitional Housing” facility for homeless families and provide them counseling in “Life Skills” including employment searches, and application for social services where appropriate.
We covet prayers for the Ministry along with volunteer services and financial support through tax deductible financial donations that may be made online or preferably sent to the following PO box:
