Welcome to Why Not Ministries, located in the greater Atlanta area!
The goal of our nonprofit organization is to prevent homelessness for low-income single parents raising minor children. We help break cycles of poverty by providing financial literacy classes, opportunities for fellowship and community service, and emergency rental assistance. Our vision for the future is to provide transitional housing for single parent families.
Diana moved to Gwinnett County with her sister-in-law to make a better life for her son. When Diana found drug paraphanelia in her sister-in-law's bag, Diana confronted her. Angrily, the sister-in-law got in the car and took off with the familiy's bags. Diana's start-up money was in the car. When Diana called Why Not Ministries, she and her son were within hours of being evicted from their hotel. We were able to pay for a 2 week stay for this family, which gave them shelter until her brother could come from North Carolina to pick them up.
You can make a difference to families like Diana's. Find out how on our News and Events page!
