The homeless crisis is one of the most critical issues facing America. While numbers are ticking down in Atlanta, there are still thousands of families living on the streets.

11Alive is proud to partner with and support Atlanta Mission, Brock Built Homes, Atlanta Housing Authority and Underpriced Furniture, who are all working together with donors like you to make a difference in metro Atlanta. 

Here's how you can help! Starting Sept. 23, if you donate for a chance to win a $400,000 home, you'll be helping to transform the landscape of homeless care for the more than 4,000 women and children who sought shelter with Atlanta Mission last year.

The money raised will go toward building the proposed Ethel Street Shelter on Atlanta's west side, designed specifically for women and children experiencing homelessness. It will provide critical day services for over 4,500 individuals and create 100 new shelter beds for those most in need.
