Simple Needs GA, Inc.Marietta, GA
Our mission is to meet the simple needs of children, people experiencing homelessness, and others in need, while inspiring our community to do the same.
Executive Director: Brenda Rhodes
While agencies focused on these vulnerable populations are doing great work, most focus on the basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and job training. SNGA seeks to “fill in the cracks” by meeting other unmet, but important, needs. It is in these simple acts—bringing a tent to a person living in the woods, or providing birthday gifts to a homeless child—that we help connect people with the services that can improve their lives.

My Birthday Matters provides birthday gifts to economically disadvantaged and homeless children. Many families struggle to provide the basics to their children and are unable to celebrate birthdays. Simple Needs puts smiles on kids' faces by providing gifts, a backpack of school supplies, socks & underwear, books and party supplies to kids who might not otherwise celebrate their birthday. Comfort Kits are duffel bags packed with full-sized toiletries for residents at local homeless shelters. Shoe Them Love provides $25 gift cards for school social workers to buy shoes for kids.
