Atlanta Mission:Ending Homelessness Atlanta Mission is the city’s largest and longest-running provider of services to homeless men, women and children. Established in 1938, Atlanta Mission provides emergency shelter, temporary shelter, recovery programming, job attainment and transitional housing for more than 950 men, women and children daily.
Atlanta Mission operates five shelters that provide the following services for homeless men, women and children: The Shepherd’s Inn is our largest facility serving close to 3,000 men each year. We offer a warm place to sleep, a hot meal and an environment where our staff can engage each person to hear their story. Fuqua Hall which provides transitional housing for men who have graduated from programs at The Shepherd’s Inn. Men are employed or enrolled in an educational program full-time and pay a minimal weekly fee to simulate rent payments. My Sister’s House was the country’s first shelter serving homeless women and mothers with children. My Sister’s House offers a secure, stable environment where women and mothers with children can heal and overcome abuse, job loss, lack of education and other issues leading to homelessness. On July 1, 2013, Atlanta Mission acquired The Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children. It provides daytime services to women and children. These services are offered to women and children from all overnight shelters across the city, and deliver daytime resources while providing a safe refuge. The Potter’s House in Jefferson, Georgia. Located on a 550-acre working farm, combines discipleship with a 12-step program to help addicts achieve sobriety.

If Atlanta Mission approves our idea, would you consider becoming our GA natural gas customers to set up a perpetual fundraiser for them? We have the tools needed to send $4 to them every time you pay your Atlanta Gas and Light regional bill via our company. Add me as a friend and let me know how you feel about this idea. Thank you.
We usually end homelessness for people, but today this sweet dog showed up at our Bolton Road office. We took her to the vet and she doesn't have a chip. If anyone is interested in ending her homelessness, she will be here until 3:30pm. Please send us a private message with any serious inquiries. If she doesn't have a home by 3:30, we will take her to the humane society.
Who remembers last summer when the Buckhead Singles cleared out all of the Target stores in Atlanta of large men's underwear for Atlanta Mission?? We still haven't forgotten that incredible blessing, but we are in need of a restock. Who's in for clearing out some more stores to bless the guests who stay with us with a new pair of underwear?? You can drop them off to any of our locations. If you have any questions feel free to send us a message!
