Our Mission

The Backpack Project of Athens (TBP/ATH) is a student run 501©(3) nonprofit organization that serves the homeless community in Athens, Georgia. We aim to engage with the Athens homeless population; host charitable volunteer programs based on service gaps identified in the community; raise money, help assemble, and distribute homeless care backpacks; and raise awareness about the causes of homelessness. Founded in 2019, service, engagement, and awareness are all core tenets of The Backpack Project of Athens' mission. These foundations are brought to life through a team of University of Georgia students and faculty who seek to drive long-term improvement within the homeless community in Athens.
