Emmaus House serves over 40,000 delicious and nutritious meals to over 1,000 hungry men, women and children each year. For many, this is the only meal they will receive that day. Our laundry facility is used over 1,000 times per year. In July of 2016 our shower suffered irreparable damages that eventually resulted in a BRAND NEW shower unit that our clients have been able to enjoy. We provide almost 30 showers weekly. We give out coats, jackets, scarves, hats and gloves and provide blankets, pillows and sleeping bags during the coldest months of the year.
We receive over 4,000 volunteer hours every year! Our volunteers are the lifeline of this vital ministry. Without their continued dedication we would not be as successful in keeping our clients fed and clean on a daily basis. Our volunteers come from churches and businesses all over Savannah. We also have students from the national Youthworks organization who come from all over the country to do youth mission volunteer work. They help us every year by deep cleaning our facility.
