Born in East Point, Georgia and raised in College Park, Georgia, Tony Blackburn attended both public and private schools in the local community. After high school he continued his degree studies in business management. With the birth of his first child he had to put his education on hold and pursued a career in transportation and logistics. Growing up in College Park, he saw firsthand the impact and suffering of the working poor, those with drug and alcohol addiction, and those with mental illness. So when his cousin, Drew Harwood, was going through a divorce and facing many challenges it was then that I encouraged Drew to help others in need and Hands Out for the Homeless was born. After over three years of serving the homeless and working poor in and around Atlanta we decided to incorporate our company and seek 501(c)3 non-profit status to assist in outside donations. We received our 501(c)3 status and continue to seek outside donations that are used for personal hygiene products, backpacks, tarps, and socks for the homeless. We also provide a mobile clothes closet for the homeless to select clothing from donations that we have setup on roll-away clothing racks to provide shopping experience feeling when picking out clothing.
