Solomon’s Temple Hosts Dedication Ceremony
Organization celebrates its 38-room facility dedicated to helping the homeless.

I Say: Help show support for the community with this 38-room opening this Sunday. It will be special providing 130 beds for the homeless. No that is awesome.

They Say: Solomon’s Temple Foundation, Inc., at Springdale Place owned by Fulton County and in partnership with Invest Atlanta, a facility committed to helping homeless women and children, will hold a dedication ceremony for its building on Sun., Oct. 2 at 5 p.m. at 2836 Springdale Road, Atlanta, Ga. 30315.
Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments, learn about volunteer opportunities, make donations and tour the facility. Local politicians, such as Fulton County Chairman John Eaves and Atlanta mayoral candidates Peter Aman, Ceasar Mitchell and Michael Sterling, will also be in attendance.
Solomons Temple Foundation, Inc. is a transitional living shelter comprised of 130 beds, nutritional meals, family coaching and employment services. The organization was founded by local financier, Solomon Smallwood. To date, Solomon’s Temple has helped almost 400 individuals progress toward permanent housing and consistent employment. As well as, provide them with information on financial literacy, women’s empowerment and parenting skills and core services.
“The driving force behind why I do this is Matthew 25:40; Jesus states in this passage, ‘When you have done even to the least of these, you have done it unto me,’” said Smallwood. “To whom much is given much is required so I felt obligated to give back and help the community.”
Solomon’s Temple is unique in its endeavors for being one of the few homeless shelters in the city that houses male children over the age of 13. Forty percent of Atlanta’s homeless population is comprised of women with children. Solomons Temple Foundation, Inc. opened its doors on May 1, 2015 to reduce that number and to help to break the cycle of homelessness.
