In honor of Family Day, the Brownieland Team organized a donation drive for the Atlanta Children’s Shelter to support homeless families striving to become self-sufficient. We were excited to deliver all of the generous donations that included gift cards and necessities that will assist families in need. We hope this inspires you to volunteer as an individual or as a group with The Atlanta Children’s Shelter!
The vision of the Atlanta Children’s Shelter is to be the leading and most valued organization in Metro Atlanta which positively impacts the lives of homeless children and their families. Founded in 1986 by the Junior League of Atlanta and located in the North Avenue Presbyterian Church, the Atlanta Children’s Shelter provides free, quality day care, emotional support, an educational curriculum for homeless children, and focused social services for their families. Dedicated to helping families overcome the issues that contribute to homelessness, including domestic violence and job loss, the Atlanta Children’s Shelter focuses on the long term self sufficiency of the family – which sets them apart from other Atlanta homeless shelters. Since its inception, the Atlanta Children’s Shelter has successfully assisted in stabilizing nearly 5,000 homeless families and over 8,000 homeless children by transitioning homeless families into stable housing and sustainable employment.
