It is the Mission of Southern Soul Survivors Inc. to help others.
Yes, our mission is just that simple.
We aim to help people by working not only through our organization, but also by reaching out to other local organizations.
Southern Soul Survivors realizes that there is very little, if any, services provided to the homeless living on the Southside of Savannah, (from DeRenne Ave to 204 / 95) and we are hoping to be able to establish ourselves as a resource that provides clothing, hygiene products, and eventually shelter and shower locations so that those in need might receive help. At this time, we are awaiting the final determination from the Federal Government for our Federal 501 (c) 3. We already have our state non-profit status, however, it is very limited without the Federal Government backing. We cannot apply for Federal Grants until we have the Federal 501 (c) 3. All works that have been done up to this point have been privately funded, so every donation is desperately needed.
We hope to someday expand to include temporary housing for Women and Children (which Savannah currently doesn’t have). This housing will incorporate basic home economic educational services (bookkeeping, thrifty spending habits, money saving, etc.), resume writing classes, basic computer skills, and job interview skills. to those in need, so that they might improve their current situations.
If your organization has specific needs, please don’t hesitate to contact us with those needs, we have a knack for finding bulk items at a DEEP discount!
“The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.”
― Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa was a wise woman, she knew that if people were to look at one another not as their social class, but just as other people, as equals, this world would be such a better place. Everyday there are people here in Savannah who feel unloved, unwanted, unneeded, and lost.
Sometimes it takes just one person to make… a eye contact, a smile, one small gesture… one prayer… take one moment in time; to change a person’s entire life.
To quote Saint Mother Teresa again, –
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
