Hosea Williams

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.

Throughout February Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK will present Black History Moments, focusing on key stories, organizations and people that made a difference. 

Saturday morning at 7am Kiplyn Primus speaks  with Elisabeth Omilami, CEO of Hosea Helps formerly known as Hosea Feeds the Hungry, as the organization continues to expand their reach beyond the "dinner season." Ms. Omilami, the daughter of civil rights leader Hosea Williams, also shares her memories of Julian Bond.
