On November 4, Paran Homes joined HomeAid Atlanta at Phoenix Pass
for a HomeAid Care Day. Care Days are HomeAid’s day-long volunteer powered events to make
improvements and upgrades at facilities serving Atlanta’s homeless
Paran Homes volunteers worked hard to complete the day’s tasks which included painting two sets of two-story stair units’
metal railings, rebuilding and staining four picnic tables, cleaning and readying an apartment for a new family, and finishing punch list
items on HomeAid’s recently completed eight-unit apartment building.
Jean Yontz, Phoenix Pass Executive Director stated, “Our residents were once again blessed as their picnic shelter
received a complete revitalization with four beautiful, custom built picnic tables, in addition to other much-needed
projects. The picnic table area is used daily for gatherings, quiet moments of meditation, and socialization. Thank you
HomeAid Atlanta and Paran Homes for pouring your gifts of time and talents into the lives of our residents.”
This was the second Care Day partnership this year for HomeAid and Paran Homes. The groups partnered together in
May for a Care Day at Shepherd’s Rest Ministries in Dallas, GA. Paran Homes is a devoted HomeAid Atlanta supporter.
HomeAid is thankful for this partnership and Paran Homes’ continued involvement.
HomeAid has partnered with Phoenix Pass since 2009, constructing two eight-unit buildings and a community center adding 96 beds to Rockdale County to serve homeless single mothers and their children. The second apartment building
was completed and dedicated this summer.
