The group, which calls themselves the Mad Matters, comes together on the first Saturday of every month in the church basement to weave sleeping mats. But instead of yarn, the group used plarn, plastic bags turned into crocheting material.

The group works in together with the Trinity Community Ministries, an Atlanta-based group dedicated to helping homeless men reclaimed their lives.
