The Potter’s House: Homeless Shelter for Men Facing Addiction in Atlanta

For many of those facing homelessness, life transformation begins with overcoming addiction. Every night, thousands of men and women will end up on the streets, struggling in their unfortunate circumstances, alone. Often they’re just looking for a place to go with support and hope. A place like The Potter’s House.

God cares about the whole person, and so do we.

The Potter’s House, our men’s shelter for addiction recovery, is located near Athens in Jefferson, Georgia on a 550-acre farm. Every day we help guide as many as 180 men toward a better life through long-term residential disciple programs. Our staff, just like God, cares about each individual person as a whole. No matter where these men are in their journey, our staff lends their ears, hearts, and time to help guide them.

We know that every man’s story is different, each needing support to take the first step. Our programs and facilities are designed to foster an environment to nurture healthy relationships with God, self, and others.
