Atlanta Children's Shelter

DESCRIPTION

Every morning 13,000 people in Atlanta wake up with no place to call home. Approximately 2,500 of them are children.

The Atlanta Children's Shelter provides loving, quality child development and supports services for homeless families striving to become self-sufficient.



Atlanta Children's Shelter

The Points2shop executive team recently visited this local organization and are convinced donation money is very well spent at the Atlanta Children's Shelter. Together with our members we want to gather a considerable amount of money to help this organization continue their current work and open up a new location in town.

Their work

The Atlanta Children's Shelter describes their work as follows:

"Our loving, professional child care workers, social workers and volunteers believe in the vulnerability of the child and the hope for their future.

We provide comfort, safety, love, reassurance… and a hug when needed. We also provide the more tangible life threads:

Offer employment counseling, job development and other job assistance services,
Offer ongoing case management and family counseling,
Offer housing assistance through Aftercare Program,
Daily nutritional meals and snacks, served piping hot with a smile,
Biweekly, on-site well-child checks, plus immunizations and referrals for primary health care,
Cultural and enrichment activities, including weekly field trips to Fernback, the Atlanta Zoo and other fun places children love and thrive on, and
Educational opportunities that are customized to the particular needs of homeless children.

Ours is a safe haven, completely free of charge, for as long as a child needs us!

Founded in 1986, 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 us apart from other Atlanta homeless shelters. Since our opening, the Shelter has provided loving care for nearly than 7,700 homeless children and helped guide nearly 5,050 homeless families to stable, self-sufficiency."




More information

The Atlanta Children's Shelter's website can be found here.
They also have aTwitter,Youtube and Facebook account.
4 out of 4 stars on charitynavigator.org for financial policy, accountability and transparency.

If you would rather donate directly to the cause you can do so on their website

The Goal

The goal is to help families achieve long term self-sufficiency - to break the cycle of homelessness permanently.



Points2shop will match amount donated

Points2shop has matched a total of $1000 donated by members in November 2012

At the end of 2012 Points2shop donated an amount of $2000 to the Atlanta Children shelter. Member donations doubled and rounded up to $2000. The shelter will help 14 families for a full year with the money donated.
