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.
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.
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.

pictures & progress from the Week of August 5 - 11
Glory Be - the City of Newnan has given the go-ahead for the renovations to proceed. Now the plumber can get to work, taking out a toilet and installing an ADA shower.
Big thanks are in order: to Susan, for a brand-new 40 inch TV...to Betty, for not only paying off the Washer/Dryer but also gifting us with cookware and a brand-new vacuum. To everyone who's gone to Amazon and contributed. We've been so blessed by the generosity of this community.
We simple must give a big shoutout to Brian Shelton, who, with his wife Pat are two of our oh-so-important weekly volunteers - But Brian is also our Project Manager for this renovation. Honestly, not a day has gone by that Brian hasn't worked on this, moving it forward, inch by steady inch. We don't know where we'd be without his experienced hand on the wheel.
What's in the works for August 12 -18
HALLELUJAH! Since the The City has approved our plans, we're about to get back to work, big time. WORK PARTY THIS SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 10 -2. We hope to be setting up the House Mother's apartment.
The Kitchen needs: tongs, mixing bowls, Tupperware of all sizes, serving platters, baking pans - cake, pie, muffins tins, cookie sheets, measuring cups. A mixer. In supplies, we'd love to see: Teas, coffee, oatmeal, cereal, tuna. Basically anything that's shelf stable - baking mixes, rice and pasta dishes. Let's fill these shelves up!
If you have questions, please write us at email@example.com
We hope you've gone to Amazon by now, and checked out our Wedding Registry - 'The Lodge & One Roof'. There are still a few items - towels, linens and lamps. The Washer/Dryer has been purchased!! Thank you to Jim & Ceil Hardin, Judy Aycock, David & Deborah Butcher, and Betty Baggett for making this happen!
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.
