The purpose of our program is to provide transitional housing services to low-income individuals on section 8. We acquire property in distressed areas, make renovations to the homes and then provide them as affordable housing options to those who are on government assistance.
We provide supportive resources to these tenants to include mental health services and counseling, credit repair and financial literacy courses. We also provide counseling in regards to parenting and spiritual guidance to assist our residents in enhancing their quality of life.
Our program provides free food at our food bank in Atlanta and partners with organizations like Whole Foods and Freshly to combat food insecurity in disadvantaged communities. We’re feeding people, supporting our community, and saving food from going to waste.
HOME Rehabilitation Program
Through CHIP Grant funding, PUSH Ministry provides the HOME Rehabilitation Program, which offers rehabilitation assistance to homeowners in the City of Atlanta based on the availability of funds, household income, the requests of the homeowner and the conditions of the home.
The PUSH Ministry HOME Rehabilitation Program offers grants for renovation services to low-income individuals to assist them with repairs needed to their home. These grants are used to repair potentially life-threatening hazards that can be found in older homes like imminent health and safety threats, lead based paint, poor indoor air quality, electrical repairs, deferred maintenance problems or code violations.
How Homeowners Can Get Involved
The PUSH Ministry HOME Rehabilitation Program helps low income homeowners renovate their homes through emergency repair loans and deferred payment loan programs. The purpose of the Housing Rehabilitation Program is to bring owner-occupied dwellings up to local and state building codes and to provide more livable and suitable environment for the homeowners, increase property values, and serve as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization.

PUSH Ministry makes a sustainable impact in Kroger communities by redistributing food. Millions of tons of food is wasted in the United States.
Although food is wasted, there are millions of homes that have difficulty affording food to provide to their family members due to lack of resources. In many cases, the food thrown away into landfills is edible and healthy.
PUSH Ministry is positioned as a leader in the community by collecting unspoiled, healthy food and donating it to those in need. By giving quality food, to charities, food banks and homeless shelters, we’re feeding people, supporting our community, and saving that food from going to waste.
