Purpose of Organization

The Atlanta Day Shelter is an ecumenical ministry that opened in 1984 to serve as a home and resource center for homeless women and children.  It is a Christian organization whose basis and foundation is the love of God.  The Shelter eases the burden of homelessness for women and children by providing basic and daily necessities while respecting their human dignity.  Each year, the professional counselors, staff, and volunteers have helped over 6,000 women and children move towards more independent and productive lifestyles.  Services include providing food, clothing, toiletries, diapers/formula, laundry/shower facilities, phones, job counseling, self-esteem classes, and child immunizations.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are needed to serve meals, work with the children, and work in the clothing room and other areas of the facility.
