Welcome Home

 

Opening our doors to the homeless and disabled

of the Chattahoochee Valley Area since 1976

 

It is with profound sadness that we say goodbye to our founder and champion for the homeless, Mrs. Sarah Stewart. She passed away yesterday morning at the age of 83. To know Mrs. Stewart was to love her. She radiated kindness, compassion, and love wherever she went. She never seemed to meet a stranger but instead met everyone with open arms and a great big genuine hug. It was her servant’s heart that led her to open up her own family’s home to eight elderly homeless men from the streets in 1976. They were the first residents of what would become The Stewart Community Home. Her vision for serving those most in need with no place to go is the driving force behind what we do at the Stewart Home. And we know that her light shines on here where hope and grace can be found and where lives are continually changed for the better. Her life’s work and her legacy will live on, and we will continue to honor the name of the one who started it all with the first homeless shelter in our community. To the angel who walked among us… Mrs. Stewart, you will be greatly missed.

On Thursday, November 1, we will be celebrating the life of Mrs. Sarah Stewart with a memorial service at the Stewart Community Home. The service will be held at 2:00pm. Please come join us to remember this amazing lady who spent her life serving others.

The event was a wonderful success! After a lovely dinner, guests danced the night away to the Swingin’ Medallions. What a fun event!

Thank you all for your support!

Restoring Hope: Restoring Home Capital Campaign

Great things are happening at the Home, and more disabled, homeless people are receiving care than ever before in its 42 years of operation. As the needs of the community have continued to grow, so have the efforts of the Stewart Home in meeting those needs. With the expansion of services to help those who need it most, it is time to make some much-needed repairs and renovations to the Stewart Home’s aging building. The Restoring Hope: Restoring Home Capital Campaign acknowledges that the Stewart Home is already restoring hope to so many and that it is time to work toward restoring the Home itself because it truly is “a place to call home” for many now and in the future.
