Shelter for Women & Children


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.


We are excited to share an important milestone as we prepare for the construction of Restoration House, our new low-barrier shelter for women and children, located on our current Ethel Street facility, The Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children (ADS).

The last day for services at ADS was Thursday, March 5, 2020. Day services will be closed until further notice. We will update this page once we offer day services again.

We anticipate construction will continue until spring 2021 when the new Restoration House building will open on Ethel Street with enhanced day services and overnight shelter for around 100 women and children.

Women and children seeking day services or overnight shelter at this time should contact Gateway Center at 404-215-6600. Gateway Center is located at 275 Pryor St. SW, Atlanta, GA 30303.
