Our Mission

Marked For Life Ministries and our dedicated partners strive to showcase the love of God by aiding those who are hurting in their greatest time of need. We do this through providing tangible, faith-based programs, and resources that bring relief.

What We Do


Crisis Services that lead to true change.

By supporting DeKalb County, YOU are making a meaningful contribution to helping those in crisis. In 2022 alone, the 24/7 Crisis Line of Marked For Life Ministries answered over 8,000 calls from residents requiring assistance. Additionally, The Hope Center offers faith-based programs for people struggling with homelessness, addiction, and food insecurity. Our services go beyond just addressing immediate needs; we provide genuine, long-lasting healing by pairing each neighbor with a devoted care team who will work together to rebuild their lives!




Community Engagement that fulfills REAL needs.

With YOUR help, Marked For Life Ministries mobilizes the local church to be the hands and feet of Jesus. By coming together and joining our Deliver Hope projects, it is possible to foster connection within the community while addressing pressing needs. In 2022, our outreach efforts positively impacted over 4,000 DeKalb County residents. 


Deliver Hope Projects are here to provide year-round support and assistance to those who suffer from poverty. We strive to fill the large gaps in needs around DeKalb County so that everyone can have a chance at living with hope.



Committed to filling plates rather than landfills.

Our dedication to preventing food waste has enabled us to form partnerships with local restaurants and retailers through Marked For Life. As a result of these initiatives, food is rescued consistently and used to fill the shelves at our crisis center pantry. Additionally, seven other organizations within our county benefit from this life-saving resource. In 2022, an incredible 50,000 pounds of food was saved from going to waste.
