Premier Organizations Serving Homeless Children Merge

Two metro Atlanta organizations that fill a compelling need for homeless children and families—Our House and Genesis Shelter—will combine operations on July 1st.

Our House opened its doors to children in 1988 and is a full-day, year-round, nationally accredited early childhood education center. It serves up to 79 children daily and offers comprehensive support services to parents experiencing homelessness. If parents without permanent housing—often single women—need to go to, look for or train for a job, that parent’s child has quality, reliable early childhood education at Our House.
