Chickamauga, GA – (July 1, 2014)   Clogged gutters, peeling paint, overgrown weeds or a downed tree are a challenge for any homeowner, but when you are elderly or have no money for home repairs, these can be an impossible challenge.

Project 52 has helped many desperate homeowners face these challenges in Chattanooga, and now Project 52 is expanding to help people in North Georgia. Led by a volunteer board of directors and director, Chris Robinson, the Project 52 goal is to glorify God through service.

According to Robinson, the mission goals of Project 52 are based on the Biblical calls to love God, love one another, to care for the widow and orphan, to feed the hungry and give to the poor. “The Bible’s call to action is broad, and we try to maintain the flexibility to enter people’s lives in the area of their immediate need.

“Our unique ability, however, is to help widows and other homeowners who face challenges they just can’t meet on their own – things like a leaking roof, a downed tree or electrical hazards. We also exist to serve other nonprofits so they can direct more of their resources toward fulfilling their missions,” Robinson explained.

Nonprofits recently served by Project 52 in Chattanooga include Chattanooga Community Kitchen, Signal Mountain Social Services, The St. Andrews Center, Channels of Love and Widow’s Harvest among others.

Chris Robinson, M.Div., Ph.D, is pastor of Hope Fellowship Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Chickamauga, and many of the volunteers for projects in north Georgia are members of the church. “It’s been a wonderful partnership between the church and Project 52, with Project 52 providing the administration and much of the funding, while the church has really stepped up with volunteers,” Robinson said.

Project 52 also needs the donations of individuals and organizations to fulfill its mission.

“Clearing a tree is a low cost operation,” Robinson explained, “but repairing a collapsed roof or painting a house requires supplies, and we rely on our donors to help with the cost of materials.”

Individuals or nonprofits may request help from Project 52 or learn about donating or volunteering by going to the website www.proj52.com or by emailing Chris Robinson at or call at 706-375-4673.   “We are happy to set up a time to evaluate the project, and we do our best to match skilled volunteers to the job at hand. We’ve already done a number of projects in north Georgia, and we are excited about the opportunities for service in this area.”
