Jordan Foxworthy is the thoughtful and driven personality behind the Atlanta Day Shelter at the Atlanta Mission, an organization that serves homeless men, women, and children in metro Atlanta. She might have been born in Los Angeles and have a father with a famous last name, but this mission-driven woman is a force of nature in her own right. Today, we talked about fears, dreams, and what we're learning about dealing with people who are different from us. We only had a few minutes together, but I think I'm going to have to schedule regular catch-ups with this one. She's full of wisdom, and you know why? Because she's following her mission, not the madness.
Things We Talked About in this Episode:
Atlanta Mission: The Atlanta Mission transforms, through Christ, the lives of those facing homelessness. They are a community united to end homelessness—one friend at a time.
Compassion International: Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult.
