Future Home

The property located at 501 Newnan Road, cornering on Bledsoe Street, was recently donated to Open Hands.  This tract is ideally situated to allow for the construction of a 5,500 square feet facility (our current facility is 1,896 square feet) that will provide the space and set-up to expand the ministry as we seek to help those in need in our community.
