Jackie became involved with Our House (then Genesis Shelter) after her son was born. Inspired by the challenges of motherhood, she had a desire to help other families who were raising children while also grappling with temporary homelessness. For more than 15 years, she has helped Our House by serving on the board and the marketing committee, fundraising, adopting families for Christmas, and volunteering with her husband Jimmy and with their children, Maggie and Robert.

The gala will be held at 6:30 on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at the Atlanta History Center. The night will include a silent and live auction, a wall of wine and live entertainment. We had a great turnout last year and hope you will join us this year to celebrate Jackie, and to support the mission of Our House.
