PhilanthropyATL: Volunteer Day at Our House
Join your Community Foundation family for an impactful volunteer day at Our House!
Make philanthropy a family affair with this hands-on volunteer day for all ages at Our House, a nonprofit providing education and housing for families experiencing homelessness. Together, we’ll increase the vitality of our region, one family at a time, with this impactful volunteer opportunity.
We know the research: the precious years between birth and age five set the stage for a child’s ability to become a healthy, independent adult. Mitigating the effects of homelessness on young people and closing gaps in development and early education allows Our House to tackle homelessness at the source.

Live your legacy
Bruce Feiler writes what he knows. His work combines timeless wisdom with timely knowledge turned into practical, positive messages about meaning, passion and joy. He is the author of six consecutive New York Times bestsellers, including Council of Dads, which shares his experience when dealing with life’s greatest challenge: mortality. When faced with death, Feiler developed a trusted council of father figures to advise his daughters on living, traveling, searching, dreaming, learning.
Join us for an inspirational evening with Feiler and explore the Philanthropy Store at the Junior Achievement’s Discovery Center, where the Community Foundation teaches 75,000 Atlanta seventh graders annually about the value of philanthropy.
