Friends of ATLAS,

The beginning of Spring is always a poignant reminder of change. I want to share with you some changes that I know will yield positive results for our community.

As of April 6, I have stepped down as Director of ATLAS of Carmichael. Having launched ATLAS a little over 7 years ago, it’s been a privilege to watch our ministry grow into an integral part of our community. We’ve seen our local churches work together in unprecedented ways as we address homelessness in Carmichael. Many members of our community have been served and many more have been given the opportunity to serve others. We know there are many vulnerable, underserved people in Carmichael, and ATLAS has become a place where they can go for help and guidance. We’ve strived to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who are hurting.

And ATLAS will continue its mission. The ATLAS Board of Directors, along with Paul Hobson, will see that the ATLAS Thrift Shop remains a hub which serves the needs of the Carmichael community. Paul has been the manager of our thrift shop for almost 4 years. He has a vision for a new prayer ministry that will function out of our store. Come by and check our new prayer room! The ATLAS Thrift Shop will continue as Carmichael’s only locally owned and operated nonprofit thrift store. As always, we will accept your gently used items and provide volunteer and employment opportunities within the community.

As for me, I’m not going anywhere. I will continue to lead another local nonprofit organization, Carmichael HART (Homeless Assistance Resource Team). In addition, I’ve started a new position with Sacramento Self-Help Housing as supervisor of Homeless Outreach. I will continue the work that God called me to and will continue to support and promote ATLAS. 

Thank you for your support and friendship all these years. I look forward to seeing and serving alongside you in the years to come!
