Holiday Dinner Events
Atlanta's Own Festival of Human Services Since 1971
Our well rounded holiday menu consists of a meat option, vegetables , starches, breads, water, other beverages and dessert. Some of these meals are served in a seated ballroom setting, and others are packed to-go and delivered to the homes of senior citizens and households without transportation. Every holiday season we serve over 20,000 of these meals.
Hosea Helps invites barbers and hair stylists from all over Atlanta who volunteer their time and skill to provide free barber and beauty services to hundreds of children, women and men every holiday season. We provide hair washing trailers, clean towels, and everything that our volunteer stylists need to make the people we serve feel their best.
At each event, we provide free children’s, women’s and men’s clothing. Individuals can find winter coats, scarfs and socks, quality business attire, shoes and more. We offer hot shower trailers and toiletry kits that allow the individuals we serve to bathe and groom themselves before putting on the clean clothing that they picked out for themselves.
Medical doctors and nurses come together every holiday season and donate their time and skills to providing the families and individuals we serve with health care screenings for conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, and make themselves available for consultation. Children who don’t have access to a doctor have an opportunity to be seen for free.
Our partnership with the Georgia Department of Labor, and other agencies who work together to combat unemployment allows us to provide the guests who attend our event with the tools that they need to move toward financial stability. We offer job readiness training, job placement, and family financial planning to anyone who attends our event.
Every event, our entertainment team recruits great music, dance and vocal performances from all over Atlanta, and brings them together for a day full of family friendly and inspirational entertainment. The guest who attend our events can sit down by the stage and enjoy the show, while local acts walk out onto the stage, taking this opportunity to give back.
