Why fundraise for Project Eleven26?
Each night in Atlanta, there are over 13,000 women and children who are experiencing homelessness. With your help, we are able to provide supportive services that will have a long-term impact in the lives of women with children each year. Nearly one third of our operating funds come directly from people like you. Your support truly makes a difference in the community, and in the lives of these women experiencing homelessness to design a new story in their life.
