One Roof Ecumenical Alliance Outreach

Thrift Store


Not only does the One Roof Thrift Store allow us to provide clothing, furniture and household goods to families in need, it also pays our bills - our sensational store pays the operating costs of our agency - and that allows us to take your donation and put it to right back into the community, to take care of the most vulnerable among us. So, whether you're shopping with us or donating those treasures you can now live without, you're helping us build better communities.

Our Store is located at 251 Temple Ave

Hours are 10 - 4 Monday thru Saturday

Food Pantry


 Since 1985, the Coweta Community Food Pantry has served those who are hungry.  

Clients can come every month to pick up a box filled with canned goods, breads, staples...fresh fruits and vegetables as donated - and even meat.

Partnering with the superwomen of the Newnan Junior Service League and supported by their annual Can-A-Thon, we also offer kid bags with peanut butter, jelly, cereal and snacks. 

Food Pantry is open every

Monday, Wednesday & Friday

1 - 4

Assistance Ministry


We know that everyone hits hard times.

When you've been injured on the job, or that major car repair takes next months rent...we're here with financial assistance for families in crisis. 

Working on a case by case basis, One Roof pays bills for those going through a tough situation that is not of their making - as much as our resources allow.  The goal is always the same: Keep families together, stable, healthy and in their homes.

All Financial Assistance requires a personal interview. Please bring ID and all relevant paperwork to the Office 

at 255 Temple Avenue

Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 1 - 4

About Us


In 2007, a group of pastors and community leaders began discussing a place where resources could be pooled, and people could go when they were facing difficulties. One Roof was born.

Our first Executive Director was Derenda Rowe, who was already managing the Coweta Community Food Pantry.  The two agencies have been working together ever since. Over the years since One Roof has continued to grow, expanding our outreach efforts.  In 2014, we moved to our current location at 251 (the Thrift Store), 253 (Food Pantry) and 255 (Assistance Office) Temple Avenue in Newnan.

How You Can Help

  • Pray!  Please keep us and those we serve in your thoughts.
  • Contribute!  Because the Thrift Store pays our operating expenses, including salaries, every dollar of your donation goes back out the door to help our community. Your ongoing support can make a world of difference to a family in crisis.  Checks made out to One Roof can be sent to P.O. Box 916, Newnan, GA  30264.
  • Donate!   Bring your gently used items to our thrift store.  Donations can be dropped off any time the store is open - Monday thru Saturday, 10 to 4. Remember, those treasures you no longer need help us to build better communities, right here in Coweta.
  • Donate BIG!  Got a working car your family no longer needs? Please consider donating it to our 'Working Cars for Working Folks' program. Coweta is a tough place to live and work without wheels.  
  • Give!  We love to see personal care items - like toothpaste, shampoo or soap - come in the door; we promise, our clients really appreciate them.  The Food Pantry also needs these things, always: tuna, fruit,  peanut butter & jelly, condiments and baking goods.
  • Volunteer!  Help us in the office or thrift store.  We simply couldn't do what we do without our volunteers - they make all the difference. Whatever your talents, we'll find a place for you.
  • Serve!  One Roof works with NEST, Newnan's Emergency Warming Center, to provide a safe place for our homeless population on nights when the temperature goes below 35 degrees. Serve the most vulnerable among us by staffing the center or providing dinner. We also need volunteers to work with our guests at The Lodge. Please contact us if you'd like to grace us with the gift of your presence.
  • Endow.   As this agency grows and takes on more responsibilities, it is imperative that we build a fund for those inevitable rainy days.  Please remember us as you create your own future plans.
