Begun in 1979, Clifton Sanctuary Ministries is the first and oldest faith-based emergency shelter for homeless men in Atlanta. Clifton’s leadership envisions “a world where homelessness is not helplessness, and disability is not inability.” Their mission is to “show compassion to the men we serve…and expect accountability from them. Through faith in God…and by working as a team…we strive everyday to transform lives and change our world for the better.”
On the first Friday of every month, PHPC members provide dinner to the 30 men who reside at Clifton. And the Middle and High School Youth Groups serve breakfast a couple of times during the year. The church also regularly collects toiletries and clothing donations for Clifton residents.
