Hosea Helps

Giving Tuesday is December 1.  Each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is a day for you and others around the country to support the organizations that serve your community.

This last Saturday before Thanksgiving, I reached out to Elisabeth Omilami, President and CEO of Hosea Helps about the organization's 50th year serving our community members experiencing food and home insecurity. Hosea Helps is a mainstay, and they do it all with donations from the community. 

Hosea Feed The Hungry & Homeless/Hosea Helps is Jazz 91.9 WCLK's non-profit partner. They have served over one million people since 1971. The organization was started by Civil Rights Icon Reverend Hosea Williams. They continue their legacy of service under the leadership of his daughter, Elizabeth Omilami. Together, WCLK and Hosea Helps have over 90 years of service to the Atlanta Community.

Over the last several years, WCLK has partnered with non-profits such as the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the Jazz Foundation of American to assist them with their mission of making a difference in our community. This Fall, we are partnering with  Hosea Helps/Hosea Feed The Hungry an organization that provides meals to those in need along with a myriad of socials services to the underprivileged such as children’s services, homeless prevention, women’s job programs and much more.

How can you help our non-profit?

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I caught up with Elisabeth Omilami, Executive Director of Hosea Feeds The Hungry/Hosea Helps. Many people in our community know about the big events that Hosea Helps produces, the Holiday dinners and festivities around Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Ms. Omilami tells us about what the organization and team does on a day-to-day basis. The organization has continued to grow as have the needs of our community have grown.
