Julie’s House is proof that God “performs miracles”. From humble beginnings in 2004, we acquired a 10-room shelter in Columbia County and opened a thrift store/resource center with 6,000 sq. ft. of showroom space. We thank God for the many miracles that He has “performed” to fulfill our desire to help homeless women and their children. We give Him the praise and the glory!
Thank you, WRDW-TV News 12, for featuring our ministry as your “Time to Care” organization for January. Many of our citizens “cleaned house” and brought an abundance of donations for our thrift store. Amanda Aragon is Creative Services Coordinator for Channel 12. Thank you, Amanda and Channel12, for all that you do for us!
Also, WRDW-TV News 12 invited us to participate in their annual “Family Fair” May 10th from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Augusta Commons. There will be games, crafts, food vendors, entertainment, and inflatables. Admission is FREE. Please join the fun! Thank you, again, WRDW-TV News 12 and Amanda! If you would like to assist at our booth, contact me at 706-836-2781.

Tanika Bryant, Human Resources Director; Michelle Elam, Compensation & Benefits Manager; Andraea Herrin, Employment Manager; and Cindy Holland, Employee Relations and Training Manager, brought beautiful gift bags full of goodies. They wrote, “The Human Resources Department desires to make a difference in our community.

Eight members of the Junior League of Augusta gave their time on a Saturday to help at Making Ends Meet Bargain Center. Thank you, ladies, for your support and for “a job well done”!
I am truly elated that the Augusta Bar Association has selected Julie’s House to be the sole recipient of the proceeds from their golf tournament to be held in September. Omeeka Loggins, submitted our ministry for consideration for these funds. Omeeka is with the Office of the Public Defender and also was my contact with the Junior League of Augusta. Omeeka, thank you for your efforts on behalf of Julie’s House!
