Big change is coming to Peoplestown.

With the impending redevelopment of Turner Field to our north and the future development of the Belt Line on our southern border, Peoplestown is evolving quickly. However, what will the future hold for its residents? Will they benefit from all of this development? Or will they be left out again as they were when Turner Field was constructed in the 1990s.

At Emmaus House, we are committed to helping Peoplestown residents to take advantage of opportunities – for employment, for education, for a better, healthier life. Our two-generation model allows us to help families to grow so that they are ready for these changes.

Your support of Emmaus House provides educational options for children and youth as well as opportunities for adults to move beyond poverty. With your help our neighbors will be ready to step forward and embrace the changes that are coming.

On this Giving Tuesday, please give generously so that change can be a benefit rather than a barrier to success here in Peoplestown.


With Thanksgiving Thursday, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday behind us, we are wrapping up this long weekend of family gatherings, meals and shopping trips with a national day of giving: Today is Giving Tuesday. 

This year marks the fourth annual Giving Tuesday campaign. This year, owing to its previous success, Giving Tuesday incorporates an international component to raise worldwide awareness and share the joy of giving back. This consciousness raising is, perhaps, Giving Tuesday's biggest contribution. 

We are asking all of you – friends, volunteers, supporters and donors – to participate in this worldwide #Unselfie campaign by sharing your own personal examples of giving to Emmaus House.

To do this, write down on a piece of paper how you have given to Emmaus House. 

Are you a Peoplestown Partner? Are you a volunteer? Did you support our Thanksgiving at Home program with a donation? 

Then take a "selfie" holding your sign in front of you. Make sure to these hashtags: #GivingTuesday #Unselfie and (most importantly) #EmmausHouseATL ,then share on all your social networks!
