Through the valuable reuse of donated items, AUM improves lives by providing quality furniture and household goods to underprivileged families transitioning out of homelessness, engage and educate families by providing long-term solutions and resources to break the cycle of poverty.
Augusta Urban Ministries (AUM), a faith-based 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization serving the greater Augusta CSRA, provides donated furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. AUM seeks to engage and educate families living in poverty by providing long-term solutions and resources to break the cycle of poverty in our service area. AUM is driven by volunteers and donations of basic home essential items from the community.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, non-profits like ours have been hit hard financially. We have seen a decline in church support as churches have been restricted in their ability to have in-person worship services, therefore reducing the number of funds they are receiving weekly. Other contributing factors are the decline in our private monetary donations as people are dealing with job loss and/or the possibility of job loss due to the pandemic. AUM assists many in the community with transportation through our Bike program, furniture, and other resources. We understand that many of you are facing financial challenges and please know we are praying for you, our community, and our Nation. For those of you who have been fortunate enough to maintain your employment during this difficult time, it would be greatly appreciated if you would consider giving a monetary donation to AUM today. Thank you!
Your contributions will enable us to meet our goal of serving 800 families in 2021 with basic human needs.
