The Energy Assistance Program is a program where we have partnered with Partnership for Community Action (PCA) to provide qualifying low income participates with assistance with their heating bills. Since the conception of our partnership with PCA, we have assisted over 7000 households with their heating bills. We currently service Gwinnett, Walton, Rockdale, Newton and DeKalb County.
Is our free vehicle donation program where you can turn your unwanted or extra car, truck and/or RV into a tax deductible donation benefiting Place of Enlightenment Inc.. Your donation can assist us in buying more food, educational supplies, help assisting someone in need with a utility bill and so much more. Feel free to donate that next vehicle so that you can be blessing into someone, who needs that second chance.
The Youth/Adult Impact Center is a program inspired by Mr. Murray himself. The heart of Place of Enlightenment is to educate and inspire. To inform our youths and adults that true power is within. Place of Enlightenment started this program the summer of 2015 with our first summer camp, called Impact. We intend on developing this program with other services to instill purpose and value to our community today.
The Mobile Food Distribution is our monthly distribution that is sponsored by the Atlanta Community Food Bank and hosted by Place of Enlightenment. Unlike our regular distribution program, where we only serve Gwinnett, Walton and Rockdale Counties, the mobile food pantry is open to everyone in need of food. Unless otherwise noted, our mobile food pantry is usually the first Saturday of the month.
