The Drake House

IHRC is honored to be a community sponsor of The Drake House. This agency provides a short-term crisis and an affordable housing program for homeless single mothers and their children in North Metro Atlanta. Their educational, empowerment, and mentoring programs assist families in becoming financially self-sufficient and contributing members of the community. They are the only agency in the area offering an emergency residential program, serving approximately 50 families with 100 children per year. IHRC made a generous financial donation to The Drake House. This included matching employee donations and supporting production of The Drake House promotional video, which was created by ASV productions. IHRC also collected in-kind donations for The Drake Closet.

GlobalGiving – Hurricane Irma and Maria Relief

GlobalGiving connects nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country around the world. They help local nonprofits access the funding, tools, training, and support they need to become more effective. IHRC made a generous financial donation through GlobalGiving to the Puerto Rico and Caribbean Hurricane Relief Fund and the World Vision Hurricane Irma and Maria Relief Fund. These funds provide relief to survivors in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, medicine, hygiene items, temporary shelter and longer-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild.

Toys for Tots

This organization’s primary goal is to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas. Toys for Tots originally started in 1947 and the first toy was a handmade doll. IHRC employees generously contributed funds, and IHRC made a corporate financial donation to support this cause.

Atlanta Hope Lodge (American Cancer Society)

The Hope Lodge provides free lodging for cancer patients and their caregivers, creating an environment that eases both the stress of the cancer journey and the financial challenges of receiving cancer treatment. The Hope Lodge offers many programs and evening activities that allow their guests to unwind, laugh and enjoy newfound friendships. Their Meal of Hope Program provides an opportunity for Hope Lodge guests to enjoy a meal, relax and meet others in the lodge, as well as receive emotional support from others going through the cancer experience. IHRC employees participated in the Meal of Hope Program by volunteering to cook and serve dinner to 70 Hope Lodge guests. IHRC coordinated the event and covered the cost of supplies.

The mission of ACFB is to fight hunger by engaging, educating and empowering the community. IHRC employees, along with their family and friends, volunteered at ACFB’s Product Rescue Center.
