Women & Children
"It felt like family."
My Sister’s House, a 264-bed facility located at 921 Howell Mill Road, offers overnight shelter and residential discipleship programs for homeless women, as well as for women with children.
“I’ll never forget our first night at My Sister’s House,” says Heidi, a young single mom. “I finally felt at peace. It was a place for us to be safe at night, where I wouldn’t have to worry about how we will eat or sleep. It felt like family.”
That family feel starts with a loving, safe and secure environment where a woman’s and her children’s basic needs are met. My Sister’s House also provides counselors, referrals to job training programs, and help in finding housing, medical, and legal resources. And we have a fully developed childcare facility staffed with teachers and behavioral specialists.
The Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children, at 655 Ethel Street NW, provides daytime services for homeless mothers and their kids, giving them the tools needed to break free from homelessness. Each woman is met by a Client Ambassador who is focused on building a relationship, meeting her needs, and casting vision and hope for her future.
Services at the Day Shelter include day care, showers, laundry, lunch, MARTA cards for medical appointments, medical care, life-skills classes, recreational opportunities, documentation (birth certificates, state IDs), access to My Sister’s House, and much more.
